Authentic leadership is a relatively new phenomenon (see 4.3) and its definition, theoretical, conceptual and empirical evidence are still being contested. Especially in today’s liquid world that is punctuated by numerous authentic leadership crises in all areas of our daily lives such as politics, social, business, science, technology, ethnics, environment and sustainability, health and education. One way to mitigate such crises in today’s liquid times, inter alia, is to acknowledge there is an international need for a quantum increase in authentic leaders. Our Handbook contributes to this agenda.
