In the last century, there have been rapid developments regarding organization, management and leadership theories. Discussions on every topic in the social sciences have commenced including approaches that invite discussion on the findings of positive science. The concept of “charismatic leader,” which used to be admirable, has relinquished its place to the concept of “participative leader.” Thus, leaders have started to shed heavy responsibilities associated with authority previously given to leaders. This process has led to the discussions of individuals following their leaders and become independent individuals who participate actively in management. Such approaches are becoming valued widely adopted. Mostly based on the Complexity Concept, new leadership approaches such as servant leadership, quantum leadership, synergy leadership, shared leadership and sustainable leadership have emerged, and discussions on these approaches have begun.
