Leadership and Development

This paper looks at the idea of ‘leadership’ and forms part of Philanthropy for Social Justice and Peace’s series on ‘defining key concepts’ in development and philanthropy. Although widely used, and viewed as an important ingredient in successful philanthropy and development, there is no common understanding of what people mean by the term ‘leadership’ or how its value is demonstrated in practice. This paper seeks to gain greater understanding of the concept within the field, and to make it concrete and practical for practitioners. The paper is a work in progress, a starting point for discussion, and additional contributions to develop the work further are invited.
