Paradoksal Liderlik Modeli

Bu çalışmanın amacı liderliğin aydınlık ve karanlık yüzlerini bütünsel bir anlayışla açıklayan yeni bir kuramsal model geliştirmek ve böylece liderlik kuramlarının ışığında liderlik fenomenine yeni bir bakış açısı kazandırarak bir tartışma alanı oluşturmaktır. Bu bağlamda mevcut liderlik kuramlarının varsayımları incelenmiş ve lider üye etkileşim kuramından istifade edilerek yeni bir kuramsal liderlik modeli geliştirilmiştir. Geliştirilen yeni model bir liderin karanlık ve aydınlık davranışlarını bütünsel bir yaklaşımla açıkladığı için paradoksal liderlik modeli olarak tanımlanmıştır. Paradoksal liderlik modeli ile sağlanan kuramsal ve uygulamaya dönük katkılar ile birlikte gelecekte yapılacak çalışmalara nasıl bir yön verilebileceği ve yeni pencereler açılabileceği değerlendirilmiştir.

Paradoxical Leadership Model

The aim of this research is to develop a new theoretical leadership model, which explains the dark and bright sides of leadership with a holistic view, and thereby, to trigger a new debate through bringing in a new perspective to leadership phenomenon in the light of extant theories. In this respect, following a review of historical development process of leadership theories, drawing on LMX theory a new theoretical leadership model was developed. Because it explains dark and bright behaviors of a leader with a holistic view, this new model was defined as paradoxical leadership model. Theoretical and practical implications of paradoxical leadership model, as well as how new avenues will be opened for researchers in the future were discussed.
