Community as Leadership forges a relational notion of leadership linked to community and uses this lens to develop themes for future research and methodology.
The book investigates and develops several lines of thinking on community and relates them to leadership. These perspectives include individualism, sense of belonging, friendship and social networks, aesthetics and symbolism, liminality and language and ethics. Offering a critical postmodern stance, Gareth Edwards examines themes for future research, as well as suggesting ideas and implications for leadership learning.
Students looking to explore contemporary thinking on leadership will find this book to be of interest while academics will find use in the avenues for future research and conceptual thinking.
