By attending to the adult learning that takes place through more collaborative approaches to leadership, this volume draws upon scholars who understand leadership as more participatory, transformative, generative, and democratic. Looking beyond position-based individual leadership it captures how adults learn through the diverse actions, processes, and strategies collaborative leaders employ to bring about change. Drawing from scholarship and practice, this sourcebook weaves theory with the authors' experiences by showcasing real-life examples of collaborative leadership in a variety of contexts including community, healthcare, secondary, and post-secondary education. It also provides a range of creative strategies—such as playbuilding, coaching, fostering global partnerships, and ensemble leadership—as well as indigenous and feminist perspectives on leadership.
This sourcebook will support adult educators seeking to promote learning through more collaborative approaches to leadership and engagement in a variety of settings. Readers will benefit by deepening their understanding of how leadership is not only enacted among individuals, but how it is also expressed in collective ways of thinking, doing, being, knowing, and learning.
