Over the years, the gap between developed and developing countries has widened especially in the last three decades. This disparity is attributed to a failure of leadership and has been a subject of interest to scholars. This complexity has been amplified by the topical Covid crisis previously challenged by the rapid pace of change, competition from emerging economies, financial scandals, and in particular leadership malfeasance. Consequently, authentic leadership is proposed as an approach that will address leadership gaps within contemporary organisations. This leadership approach extends beyond attaining organisational outcomes to promoting the collective good within the society hence positioned to address the management malfeasance prevalent in Nigerian organisations.
