This paper proposes that research in the area of leadership would be enriched and enhanced by the explicit consideration of temporal variables, specifically polychronicity. Effective leadership involves engagement with multiple tasks, activities, and constituencies, often simultaneously. As a construct concerned with multiple task engagement and time use preferences, polychronicity is ideally situated to inform future research studies conducted to investigate a variety of extant leadership theories and traditions.
