Research and supervision
My current research looks at strengths based understandings of leadership formation in context. I'm interested in the role of agency within relational and contextually situated leadership. In particular I am interested in the means through which leaders might generate increased life giving agency within prescriptive environments given the demands of senior leadership roles.
