English term or phrase:empty-signifier
We will suggest, having examined these five different approaches to leadership, that the differences both explain why so little agreement has been reached on the definition of leadership and explain why this is important to the execution and analysis of leadership. Finally, we use the work of Lacan to ask whether ‘leadership’ is so porous in meaning because it is an ‘empty-signifier’ – a vehicle capable of embodying all kinds of meanings and fantasies – hence its persistence, resilience and contested nature.
