Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

Moving Leadership
by Stuke, Kurt B., D.A., Franklin Pierce University, 2012, 186; 3527352
Abstract (Summary)

In this study, William James's reconstruction of knowing, being, and meaning is explored as an alternative framing for Leadership Studies. Moving leadership from its current positivistic foundation to an experiential center results in leadership modeling that resonates more thickly with our lived experience. Implicit to the interdisciplinary approach taken is the notion that the issues addressed within leadership are not abstract and removed from life in general; the issues encountered within Leadership Studies are, in fact, life itself.
