Abstract:

One of the first pieces I wrote for Arena was a review essay on Graham Little’s theory of political leadership. Little was a political psychologist and I have been thinking about his work as we have watched Scott Morrison trying to transform his leadership style in the wake of the massacre in Christchurch from the hard-nosed strongman who protects our borders and keeps us safe into a huggy bear of a man lovingly embracing us all. It has been an extraordinarily unconvincing performance and Little’s work helps us to understand why by revealing the psychological structures informing styles of leadership.
