Regional transitions from conflict to post-conflict: Observed leadership practices

by Bryan, John Rodney, D.B.A., UNIVERSITY OF PHOENIX, 2009, 742 pages; 3407435


The problem faced by Acholi leaders of Northern Uganda, during a time of transition from the end of a 20+ year conflict to post-conflict and sustainable peace, is that no clear model of leadership exists for this transition. The intent of this qualitative research study using a Delphi research design was to discover a leadership model that would serve as a roadmap to guide the transition. Fourteen themes emerged: (a) cultural change, (b) reconciliation, (c) revenge and restitution, (d) traditional leader roles, (e) leader practices and behaviors, (f) repatriation, (g) recovery, (h) relationships, (i) situations, (j) value-based decisions, (k) collaboration, (l) leader roles, (m) sustainability, and (n) consensus. A leadership model emerged from consensus on culturally appropriate leadership practices.
