Abstract [en]

Honour, as a concept, is at times seen as implicit in leadership and the working of peer groups, but has rarely been explicitly discussed in management studies. This paper presents honour as a key category in socio-moral contexts, and discusses how it and related concepts, such as respect, shame and pride, affect leadership contexts. We argue, through a discussion on honour as it has been studied in, for example, sociology and anthropology, that studies thereof can be a promising avenue for developing the way in which complex leadership settings and exchanges are analysed.
