The blurred edge between the «bright» and «dark» side of leadership Academic Article


  • Espacios


  • In the last decades, most of the literature related to leadership has been oriented to describe leadership from a positive approach, showing its favourable effects. However, the dark side has been understudied. The aim of this study is to analyze the dark side of leadership in relation to its supposed counterpart bright side. We conclude that there is a thin edge between both sides, discussing the need for more empirical research to identify their limits, convergences and shared features.
