Paper Description

Edit Paper Description Content

This paper focuses on leadership communication and transformation. We look at the ways in which leaders and followers interact and the ways in which leaders attempt to create and shape meanings through images and words. We also explore a range of ideas about what it means to lead and the assumptions, beliefs, and values embedded and shaped in diverse leadership discourses. Above all, we seek to unearth the leader in each one of us and explore how we can use this leadership potential to shape a better future.
