This article reviews recent critiques of leadership theory and practice and focuses on the significance of purpose as a central concern. It goes on to frame multi-level leadership for the collective good as a spectrum and identifies four angles or approaches of significance. These are defined as the Intra-Organisational angle, the Macro-Meso angle, the Distributed and Shared angle and the System Wide Change angle.
The article briefly reviews articles in the special issue Multi-Level Leadership for Collective Good and their connections to these approaches and concludes with a future research agenda for further expanding our leadership thinking, research and practice. This research aims to broaden the perspective by providing new angles that can be studied in more depth to support leadership.
