The Contribution of Leaderful Practice To Leadership-as-Practice

The Contribution of Leaderful Practice To Leadership-as-Practice

Date
Monday 27th April 2015
Location:
Business School - G05
Description
In this presentation, Joe Raelin, the Asa Knowles Chair of Practice-Oriented Education at Northeastern University in Boston, USA, will begin with a potentially controversial assertion – that to find leadership, we must look to the practice within which it is occurring. Accordingly, he joins forces with those who seek to deconstruct leadership from its identity as an individual trait and bolster its view as a lived process and product of those contributing to an endeavor of import who together decide on their responsibilities. Joe contributes to this practice perspective of leadership, now referred to as "leadership-as-practice" (L-A-P), by developing his own democratic ideological version, known as "leaderful practice." Leaderful calls for the co-creation of community by all who are involved interdependently in its development. In the talk, after introducing both approaches, he will try to show how one – leaderful practice – contributes to the other – L-A-P!
