In this chapter a wide summary of the determinants of passion is presented and considered. This summary systematically explores the implications of insights from various multidisciplinary inputs, including psychology, sociology, leadership, and management. An historical overview of the concept of passion within the discipline of leadership theory is presented. The dualistic model of passion and importance of passion for work in the organization is reviewed. Personal and social factors are identified, and the manner by which these factors can be considered and encouraged by organizations is discussed.
