This article addresses how for‐profit organizational management and leadership considers social responsibility. It is argued in this article that managers and leaders self‐define their personal and organizational missions in holistic integrative ways or in ways that particularize and isolate their organizations from the wider societal context. This is discussed in the context of the paradigms that traditional managers and leaders use in business and commercial organizations. A companion article will continue the discussion of leadership and organization paradigms in the contexts of language and power in a subsequent issue.
