We review the film Wonder Woman as a teaching tool for leadership. The film illustrates transformational leadership, bases of power, and servant leadership while considering how gender plays into leadership. The approach we suggest is through a “movie club” activity in which the entire film is viewed, students are given prompts on what to look for, and an in-depth discussion is facilitated following viewing the movie. Wonder Woman is a useful teaching tool that engages students in ways that more...

Popular culture has been used in management education to illustrate leadership concepts. This paper suggests taking one particular piece of popular culture, the Star Wars saga, to analyze the leadership traits of the mystical Jedi. Real-world managers can be informed by their em- phasis on mindfulness and mentoring.

Through a qualitative grounded theory method, this study highlights several contributions. First, social barriers are stronger than other challenges to implementing operational excellence.

This sample reported not being likely to experience strong emotions, thereby calling into question the assumption that negative affect is related to deviance at work. This study makes several contributions including: (1) suggesting that stigmatized groups may become emotionally immune to negative stereot...
