The paper discusses organisation as a coexistence of various value systems inherent to moral leadership. It is based on the presumption that value systems also include religious beliefs that are nourished by religious narratives. The value systems demonstrate a constant relationship /or tension/ between how something is expressed (language) and what is meant (meaning).
The paper explores to what extent the semantic properties of the concept ‘king’ as used in biblical narratives overlap with the concept ‘leader’ as used in organisational leadership. It is examined how the people (moral agents) whose value systems are rooted in religious narratives, create their own semantic environment of the ‘leader’ which correlates their religious beliefs to understanding of moral leadership in an organisation. Finally, the paper investigates to what extent metaphor, charisma and autocracy, when applied to the concepts ‘king’ and ‘leader’, shape perceptions and enactment of dark and bright sides of leadership. The method applied in the paper is semantic analysis based on texts and social networks.
