Discursive Leadership

In Conversation with Leadership Psychology

by Gail T Fairhurst

Discursive Leadership: In Conversation with Leadership Psychology presents a new, groundbreaking way for scholars and graduate students to examine and explore leadership. Differing from a psychological approach to leadership which tries to get inside the heads of leaders and employees, author Gail Fairhurst focuses on the social or communicative aspects between them. A discursive approach to leadership introduces a host of relatively new ideas and concepts and helps us understand leadership's changing role in organizations.

"Unusually for an edited book, this text offers strong insights and cogency of argument throughout. In general, in my opinion, it manages to maintain a discursive focus while avoiding the exaggerated claims for the value of its approach that often mar this kind of endeavour."
