Abstract

The paper is concerned with the concept of leadership responsibility. Responsible leadership understood as normatively appropriate conduct in the pursuit of the organizational goals addresses the challenges of nowadays’ leaders in the light of global transformation processes. The paper argues that existing schools of the leadership phenomenon, herein paradigmatically grouped as “positivist” and “post-positivist”, fail to capture the scope of the therein encapsulated implications. Through reviewing existing approaches their normative vacuity, justification deficits and implementation problems are shown. In order to address these, the paper proposes a new approach, based on Habermas’ idea of democratic deliberation, as forwarded in the concept of political corporate social responsibility.
