Abstract: This paper attempts to provide an integrative definition schema suitable for redefining various definitions of leadership and building theories on leadership by following glocal fundamental research (GFR) approach which focuses both on an integrative and a holistic understanding of leadership. 'GLocal' research here refers to research that is culturally embedded in the local reality while at the same time integrative globally. An integrative view requires a broad approach including both indigenous (local) and contemporary (global) views of leadership, while a holistic approach requires the incorporation of the knower, the knowable process and knowledge of leadership from all possible perspectives and purposes. The integrative definition schema is applicable as a theoretical framework for a broader range of organisations aiming to incorporate all relevant views and the purposes of all relevant stakeholders thereby enhancing the feelings of intrapersonal and interpersonal harmony having connectedness with a higher being or feelings of transcendence.
