Event description

Description

Leadership is a popular term, idea, possible recipe and perhaps fantasy for making organizations work. It easily becomes a matter of everything and nothing. The presentation challenges the taken-for-granted assumptions and language of the leadership industry and makes a case for reflexive leadership. Through interviews with managers and those they manage, the critical deployment of leadership theories and other social science perspectives, the options and limitations of leadership are discussed. Alternative management, power, autonomy, groups and network relations are presented that help develop sharper and more thoughtful thinking and practice in both academic and practitioner contexts.

The talk is based on Alvesson, Blom and Sveningsson: Reflexive Leadership
