Language and Creativity: The Leadership Quandary (and Opportunity?)

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The author argues that for leadership research and praxis to better conjoin leadership with creativity and innovation, it is necessary to understand how language shapes the relationship. Language reflects both political and referential qualities, and the relationship is not always harmonious. If leadership practitioners fail to address the schism, dysfunctional situations can ensue. To avoid such problems, it is suggested that researchers and practitioners engage the aforementioned relationships through a reflexive process that continually doubles back and interrogates its basic assumptions.
