This model highlights the dynamic nature of leadership.
Leadership is about setting direction and helping people do the right things.
However, it can involve so much more than this!
In particular, leadership is a long-term process in which – in a very real and practical way – all actions have consequences, and "what goes around comes around."
Dunham and Pierce's Leadership Process Model helps you think about this, and understand why it's important to adopt a positive and long-term approach to leadership.
We'll look at the model in this article, and we'll explore why it's so important to understand it. We'll also look at how you can apply the model's lessons to your own situation.
The Leadership Process Model was developed by Randall B. Dunham and Jon Pierce, and was published in their 1989 book "Managing." You can see our interpretation of the model in figure 1, below.
