A new changing world where buzzwords such as "CSR", "sustainability" and "stakeholders" appear frequently, demands a new leadership style that emphasizes on societal impact and commitment to the common good. A type of leadership for modern times is responsible leadership. There are increasing demands on organizational leaders to lead in a manner that is responsible towards not only the organization but also its various stakeholders. The aim of the present study is to understand the concept of responsible leadership. It also examines various employee level and organization level outcomes or responsible leadership. Finally, the study puts forward some suggestion for future research in this area.
