This study argues that there is a clear distinction between leader-centricity and leadership. Instead of focusing on leadership as an accomplishment of a single person, leadership is here redefined as a social and organizational quality. This is a drastic shift in the way we see leaders.

The creative methodology developed here, The Fieldpath Method, can be utilized in various settings, ranging from academic research and action learning to developing and evaluating leadership programs.

This book is aimed for those who share an interest in leadership, leadership development, and in the daily hardships and joys of leaders.
