Spaces of Leadership: The Weight of Location and Leadership Density in Spaces

  • Cristina D’Alessandro
  • Frannie Léautier


This chapter is dedicated to the spaces where leadership is practiced, with a special focus on urban spaces, where leadership is concentrated in a global era. The reader is guided through the role urban spaces play in leadership development as well as the imprint leaders leave on spaces and places. The profile of a mayor in a fast-growing city in an emerging country is used to link to theory and extract lessons for other leaders working in urban emerging spaces. Comparisons are drawn with mayors in other emerging country cities to illustrate the main points.
