Leadership-followership is an interactive process of influencing and being influenced. Therefore, one major theorizing task of leadership-followership scholars is to identify bases of influence that are available in the cultural repertoire (for example, charisma, idealized vision, authenticity, or paternalism) and then elaborate how such bases of influence manifest themselves in the context of leadership-followership. Following this rationale, I seek to explore how an important, but mostly overlooked, base of influence – “face” (including both lian and mianzi in the Chinese language)–manifests in the context of leadership-followership by developing a “face-based leadership-followership”.
