Relational Perspectives on Leading discusses leadership from a relational and social constructionism perspective as practiced on an everyday basis between people. The book pursues a fast growing, practice-based approach - particularly within the Anglo-Saxon parts of the world - to organization studies and organizational phenomena. This approach allows more micro-oriented and incremental aspects of organizational practices to be explored.

Key concepts explored within this perspective revolve around plurality, emergence, interpretation, communication, meaning, linguistic turn, practice, coincidence, in-situ, co-construction and the ability to construct new ways to move forward in relation with other. The authors analyse these concepts by integrating theory and practice in concrete organizational examples.
