Leading change in the public arena
AbstractThe public arena is constantly exposed to social and economic pressures, forcing governmental organizations to question their capacity to change and to rethink their leadership status. First, we will provide an overview of the importance of leadership in achieving successful change, which is undoubtedly recognized through the academic literature on public leadership. Then, drawing on the concept of organizational change, this article explores the role of public leaders as change agents and illustrates empirical evidence that support the positive effect of change-oriented leaders actions in the public context.
