The rapidly changing pace of technological development and its resulting impact upon human endeavours, means that we are currently preparing people for jobs that do not yet exist, using technology that has not been invented, to solve problems we do not yet know are problems. One of the key qualities identified as crucial to effective leadership in the 21st Century, is creativity of thinking. The growing role of the creative industries and creative people within the economy and society more broadly (i.e. the ‘creative economy’) is underpinned by the need for effective leadership. Whilst performance psychology, with its origins in sport and exercise psychology, has been a significant contributor across many high performance settings in terms of leadership development, its growing contribution and embedding within the creative industries is signaling the need for a new age of innovation in practical application

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
