About the Author

Professor Avery’s research contributes to Sustainable Leadership in organisations at the macro level of leadership. She draws heavily from cutting-edge international enterprises that embrace leadership practices shown by research and their own performance to be more sustainable than short-termbusiness-as-usual approaches. She contrasts traditional and non-traditional approaches to leadership, presenting them in new frameworks, such as ‘honeybee’ and ‘locust’ practices; or via classical, transactional, visionary, and organic/ dispersed leadership. The objective of this research is to help managers grapple with issues of contemporary leadership, equipping them with important conceptual knowledge and key tools relevant to executive practice
