The purpose of this paper is to expand upon scholarship exploring the application of Jungian psychological concepts to leadership development.
This is a conceptual paper in which Jungian shadow is explored as a potential bridge between the simplistic conceptualization of good and bad leadership.
The importance of shadow work to leadership development is explored and activities for shadow work are provided.
Because this paper is not an empirical study, it does not present research information, propositions or hypotheses.
The paper presents a clear and accessible introduction to Jungian psychology and suggests practical exercises for incorporating shadow work into leadership development.
