Leadership in the 21st Century: Is A New Model Needed? A Qualitative Single Case Study
This dissertation is publsihed in the University of Phoenix. Library.
The purpose of this qualitative single case study was to establish whether there was a
need for a new model of leadership. The scope of a research study defines the boundaries
of that research study and this study was limited to the size of the group chosen to
participate in the study. The methodology of this study was based on a qualitative singlecase
method. The findings of this study determined, through interviews with people from
different backgrounds of experience, that the current models of leadership are sufficient
to meet the needs of leadership in the 21st century with a foundation of four pillars
established through this study. The results of this study are limited by the size of the
group chosen to participate in this study, to the time period the study was conducted in,
and cannot be generalized. With these limitations, the four pillars, which are honesty,
integrity, humility with self-discipline, and trust provide the foundation needed for
leadership in the 21st century to be successful based on the results of this study. Further
research would be needed to confirm the findings of this study.
