Abstract: The aim of the paper is to look at the concept of leadership for all within both the wider management and library management arenas. The main driver for leadership for all is the rate and level of change in the 21st century. Having leadership skills across all employees in the organisation is seen to help sustainability. Apart from change, other theoretical perspectives will be examined which inform leadership for all. These include developmental leadership, transformational management vs. transactional management, vision, motivation and innovation. The ideas around leadership for all in libraries will then be described within the context of the wider perspectives. In terms of achieving leadership for all in libraries, the following strategies will be considered: sharing the vision, trust, action learning and managing communication.
