Leadership in Today’s World from Interdisciplinary Perspectives

Le leaderhip au carrefour des sciences humaines et sociales

*  *  *

Published on Thursday, June 29, 2023


Une approche interdisciplinaire du leadership est devenue essentielle, compte tenu de nombreux facteurs tels que l’évolution rapide des technologies, la complexité des marchés, la diversité culturelle et les défis environnementaux. Cette approche collaborative permettra d’intégrer les perspectives et les compétences de différentes disciplines pour offrir une vision globale, circulaire et croisée du leadership. Les chercheurs de diverses disciplines telles que les sciences sociales, les sciences de l’information et de la communication, les sciences politiques, les sciences de la religion, la littérature, l’histoire, la didactique, la psychologie, la philosophie, la linguistique, peuvent contribuer en proposant des théories, des méthodes d’analyse, des stratégies et des procédures axées sur le leadership.



leadership has been an intrinsic part of our species, ingrained in our very nature. Its pivotal role in ensuring the preservation and advancement of humanity is undeniable. Empirical evidence from evolutionary research conducted by van Vugt, Hogan, and Kaiser (2008) confirms that the intricate relationship between leaders and their followers has effectively facilitated the formation of cohesive collectives, facilitated navigation through challenging terrains, and resolved conflicts between distinct groups. This adaptive function has provided a fertile ground for the development and flourishing of social organization, equitable resource allocation, and harmonious cooperation within groups (Oberlet, 2016).

In the contemporary era, the role of leadership has transformed into an imperative skill of paramount importance, enabling individuals to confront the emerging challenges inherent in an ever-changing world. Leaders are entrusted with the weighty responsibility of skillfully navigating complex decision-making processes, harnessing the forces of innovation, promoting motivation, and fostering unwavering unity within their teams to achieve shared goals. Their astuteness in guiding organizations towards sustainable success is integral to ensuring the long-term prosperity of businesses, collectives, and societies at large. Effective leadership, however, transcends mere technical proficiency. Leaders must possess adept communication skills, assume the role of facilitators, embody visionary thinking, and serve as wise mentors. They must demonstrate unparalleled adaptability in the face of unpredictable changes, adeptly overcome intricate challenges, and instill steady confidence to inspire trust and conviction among team members.

Against the backdrop of rapid technological advancements, intricate market dynamics, diverse cultural landscapes, and pressing environmental concerns, an interdisciplinary approach to leadership has become indispensable. This collaborative endeavor fosters the amalgamation of diverse perspectives and expertise from various disciplines, resulting in a comprehensive and panoramic understanding of leadership. Esteemed scholars from fields such as social sciences, information and communication sciences, political sciences, religious studies, literature, history, pedagogy, psychology, philosophy, linguistics, and beyond, can significantly contribute to this scholarly tapestry by proposing groundbreaking theories, employing analytical methodologies, outlining strategic frameworks, and formulating procedural guidelines that revolve around the central theme of leadership. By nurturing interdisciplinary discourse, we can unravel the profound intricacies and nuances of leadership while acquiring the necessary tools and competencies to grapple with the immense challenges of our time. In essence, this interdisciplinary paradigm represents a formidable platform through which we can bravely confront these multifaceted quandaries and foster the development of innovative and sustainable solutions.
