Community as Leadership

Community as Leadership

New Horizons in Leadership Studies series

Gareth Edwards

This book takes a fresh look at leadership through the paradigm of community. Community as Leadership develops leadership thought through important aspects of understanding community, such as individualism, sense of belonging, friendship, social networks, symbolism, liminality, language and ethics. The book also explores more critical and postmodern perspectives of leadership and community and examines themes for future research, as well as suggesting ideas and implications for leadership learning.

Extract

Writing this book has been a long journey and I have found immense enjoyment in immersing myself in a new body of literature and attempting to connect this with leadership studies. I hope you have found the book useful in your own journey within the world of leadership research. This chapter is meant as a place to end the journey of writing and a place to reflect on the contribution of the book and future avenues for research, methodology and leadership learning and development. There are many reflections made within the book and I will not attempt to capture all, but reflect on some key observations and connections I have made while re-reading various chapters.
