TUCKER, R.. Using business leadership models to analyse leadership stances in a developmental organisation in the Cape Flats. Acta theol. [online]. 2021, vol.41, n.1, pp.141-175. ISSN 2309-9089.

This practical theological multidisciplinary research investigates the leadership stances in a Christian developmental organisation operating in gangster-ridden communities in the Cape Flats within the Cape Town conurbation. In this article "stance" is used as a technical term referring to certain well-defined aspects of a leader's outlook and approach. The organisation is evaluated using a Christian transcendental leadership stance developed by integrating the transactional, transformational and transcendental business leadership stances with Christian spirituality. The analysis reveals that, within the overall transcendental leadership stance of the researched organisation, the primary purpose and motivational incentivisation is transformational. It is suggested that the research may provide leaders of other and African Christian developmental organisations with useful and productive insights into their own organisations.

Keywords : Practical theology; Transcendental leadership approach; Christian developmental organisation; Transformation; Praktiese teologie; Transendentale; leierskapsbenadering; Christelike; ontwikkelingsorganisasie; Transformasie.
