Introduction—Contemporary Spaces and Places of Power beyond Commonplace
The Introduction presents the main focus of the book, its methodology, and its goals. The chapter highlights the key issues of concern at the intersection between leadership studies and human geography that are of relevance to understanding leadership and for leadership development. Gaps in the literature are addressed through stitching together theories from different disciplines, identifying potential sources of empirical evidence to test the theories, and the types of conclusions that can be drawn from such a multidisciplinary perspective. The main approach is to underscore the link between territories/spaces and leaders and to show the beneficial consequences for leaders of knowing the spaces in which they evolve, both personally and professionally, and the related spatial dynamics.
