The book’s overall project is to argue for the potential of and show an alternative framework for reflexive leadership, that is, not fixating leadership matters with only positively connoted meanings but rather also considering the challenges and problematics inscribed in established ideas and beliefs regarding leadership – including one’s own. The framework developed includes various concepts for thinking about and doing reflexive leadership, for example, intra-reflexive and extra-reflexive leadership as well as offering a number of practical examples as food for (self-)critical thought. Hence, this book also offers a meta-reflection on today’s fascination with leadership. In the following, we first consider the building of the book’s framework; then, we turn to its main points and their relevance for practitioners and scholars interested in leadership; and finally, we dwell a little on the premise of the book and its appraisal of reflexivity in relation to leadership.
