Global Definitions of Leadership and Theories of Leadership Development

The University of Cambridge Institute for Sustainability Leadership (CISL) was commissioned to conduct a literature review on leadership and leadership development by the British Council with the purpose of informing the design of a new global programme to support future global leaders in the UK and overseas and to underpin its methodology for developing leadership skills and qualities.

The British Council wished to improve its understanding of what ‘good’ leadership means, including how these concepts are understood across different countries and regions and within the fields of policy and politics. The organization also sought to gain insight from existing leadership theories and leadership development programmes into how leadership is developed and how perspectives and practices differ globally.
