Abstract

The article identifies the need for less prescriptive and more philosophical approaches to organizational leadership. The deficiencies in traditional schools of thought are identified and the need for a holistic perspective is highlighted. A more holistic philosophy is applied to organizational leadership and some issues considered important within a holistic perspective that are typically overlooked by practitioners and theorists are also discussed. The article concludes with an illustration of several holistic principles applied to organizational leadership in the case of the cosmetics retailer The Body Shop.
