Inclusive leadership, a new leadership style, emphasizes focusing on and satisfying followers’ needs. Inclusive leadership exhibits openness, accessibility, and availability in their interaction with their followers. By systematically clarifying the history of inclusive leadership, its conception, dimension, measurement, comparison with other leadership theories, empirical researches and the contingent effects of indigenous cultures, this study summarizes and evaluates relative research at home and abroad. It also identifies the trends of future study in this field and discusses their implications for inclusive leadership’s conceptualization and measurement, research levels and methods, comparative study with other leadership theories and contextual effectiveness.
