Videography is an ideal tool for leadership development as it involves interpersonal leadership of and participation with fellow filmmakers and acting talent as well as keen observation and management of human behaviour to create strong depictions of leadership for the audience. Moreover, videographic methods deny the definitive learning outcome of ‘making someone a leader’ as inherent in the approach is the notion of ‘multiple readings of films’ and a sense of engagement with a process of discovery. Instead, videography gives participants an opportunity to explore and express their leadership as part of their own leadership journey. Videography is particularly powerful because of the intense and creative journey and the how the emergent artefacts fosters retention of ideas, experiences, and lessons.
