Developing the Competence to Lead in Everyday Situations

Anja Overgaard Thomassen, Jørgen Gulddahl Rasmussen

Research output: Contribution to book/anthology/report/conference proceedingBook chapterResearchpeer-review


This chapter discusses how leaders help one another develop their ability to lead in everyday situations through collaborative work in learning groups, focusing on the interaction between theory and practice. The theme is how the understanding of course assignments and approaches changes during leaders’ participation in a module on personal leadership development, which is part of a master’s degree in public governance. The analytic framework concentrates on the work in learning groups as an integrated part of this module, and particularly on the development of learning relationships by viewing the education process from a relational perspective.
