Discursive Leadership: A Communication Alternative to Leadership Psychology

Management Communication Quarterly

Gail T. Fairhurst

Abstract

Historically, leadership psychology has dominated the study of leadership. However, with growing attention to leadership discourse, communication, and relational stances, “discursive leadership” is emerging as a clear communication alternative to leadership psychology’s cognitive emphasis. This article previews Fairhurst’s new book, Discursive Leadership: In Conversation with Leadership Psychology, by examining the arguments and research that lend power to a discursive view of leadership.
