Reflexivity - An Innovative Leadership Research Methodology And An Ongoing Means To Develop Personal Effectiveness
Source: University of Bedfordshire
This paper offers an innovative way to consider leadership that is both relevant to the leadership research community and as a means to enquire and develop one's own personal practice. Instead of focusing on abstract themes, in which their context are often absent, here the author has argued that it is the rich detail of human interaction, from the individual's own perspective, that is important in understanding one's own practice and offering valuable insights to others. The nature of reflexivity that the author offers is heavily influenced by analogies drawn from complexity sciences as a way of increasing their understanding of ongoing human interaction, namely complex responsive processes of relating.
