Chapter 7: Responsible leadership and management: key distinctions and shared concerns
Nancy Adler is one of the most influential scholars in cross-cultural management and leadership. The exchange documented in this chapter showcases the value of Nancy’s contributions to responsible management and leadership. The chapter starts with discussing the relationship between responsible leadership and responsible management, and then moves on to explore key concerns in both fields. Themes addressed include the importance of being able to walk away from a job that requires irresponsibility; the distinction between responsibility, irresponsibility, and ‘aresponsibility’; a comparative perspective on (ir)responsibility; the role of women leaders and diversity; and the importance of beauty in responsible leadership and management. A commentary follows each of Nancy’s responses that creates a connection to the extant responsible management discussion while highlighting related opportunities for future research.
