We may have different interpretations of this topic - in my mind, "sustainable leadership" is about actions to guide organisations to engage in more environmentally friendly practices (e.g., https://journals.sagepub.com/doi/10.1177/2158244020969394), although I appreciate that it could be interpreted as "sustained leadership" meaning longevity in leadership. Feel free to get in touch to discuss.

Overall, the quality of written expression is below professional standard. UC Study Skills assistance is recommended to help improve writing skills.
Use permanent, rather than relative, time references. For example, instead of "20 years ago", refer to something like "at the beginning of the 21st century". In this way, the text will survive better into the future, without needing to be rewritten.
Use 3rd person perspective (e.g., "it") rather than 1st (e.g., "we") or 2nd person (e.g., "you") perspective in the main text, although 1st or 2nd person perspective can work well for case studies or feature boxes.
The grammar for many sentences could be improved (e.g., see the [grammar?] tags). Grammar-checking tools are available in most internet browsers and word processing software packages. Another option is to share draft work with peers and ask for their assistance.
Use double (not single) quotation marks "to introduce a word or phrase used as an ironic comment, as slang, or as an invented or coined expression; use quotation marks only for the first occurrence of the word or phrase, not for subsequent occurrences" (APA 7th ed., 2020, p. 159).
Numbers under 10 should be written in words (e.g., five); numbers 10 and over should be written in numerals (e.g., 10).
Figures and tables
APA style is used for Figure captions.
Each Table and Figure is referred to at least once within the main text.
Refer to each Table and Figure using APA style (e.g., do not use italics, check and correct capitalisation
Citations use correct APA style.
References are not in full APA style. For example:
Excellent use of embedded in-text interwiki links to Wikipedia articles. # No use of embedded in-text links to related book chapters. Embedding in-text links to related book chapters helps to integrate this chapter into the broader book project.
The chapter is now over the maximum word count, so some of the additional content was ignored for marking purposes. For example, a lot of unnecessary general material was added to the Overview. Focus more directly on the topic (sustainable leadership) instead of the more general issues around sustainability.
The focus questions have been improved.
A case study was added, but it had nothing to do with sustainable leadership.
Some general leadership theory is added, but it is not explained how this relates to sustainable leadership.
No additional coverage of relevant research has been added.
Some improvements have been made to spelling and grammar.
Additional resources have been added to the See also section.
