5.4.2 Leadership expectations

  • Largely because of expectations created in childhood (our 'inner child of the past'), we have many unconscious expectations of leaders, and may well harbour resentments, anxieties, suspicions, subservience, passive resistances and attitudes to leadership that have little relationship to current adult realities.

  • The leader needs to be able to manage these feelings and his or her own responses to them.

  • Leaders will tend to emerge in any group or team situation, and denial of this need can often create problems.
