The topic of leadership is common in today’s world, as the specific behaviors used to lead have been found to have an impact on a group’s successes and failures. Because work tasks typically have implicit or explicit deadlines, time is a contextual factor that influences most workplaces. Despite this, research on the time-related aspects of leadership is surprisingly limited. However, recent work has proposed “temporal leadership” as a behavioral style that can be used to influence others to efficiently utilize time. Temporal Leadership is broken down into five dimensions, Temporal Direction, Temporal Modeling, Temporal Intervention, Temporal Monitoring, Temporal Encouragement. Each of these dimensions likely plays a key role in impacting followers to make better use of their time. In this paper, we consider temporal leadership and its dimensions. In doing so, we utilize real-world examples to highlight its practical importance, in addition to where future research can be done to further demonstrate its utility.
