In light of research on leadership that stated, "much leadership thinking has failed to recognize that leadership is not merely the influential act of an individual or individuals but rather is embedded in a complex interplay of numerous interacting forces," questions have emerged regarding how to study leadership within the context of complexity theory (Uhl-Bien, et al, 2007, p. 302, as cited in Avolio, Walumbwa, & Weber, 2009, p. 431).

Discuss the Uhl-Bien et al. (2007) conclusion that complexity theory lacks substantive research. In constantly changing technological, social, economic, and political environments, is the emergent construct of complexity theory valid? If not, why? Justify your response with research.
