Open seminar: Experienced meaningful encounters in the unfolding of collective leadership
Welcome to an open seminar with Leni Grünbaum, PhD student at Aalto University, Finland, on the theme "Experienced meaningful encounters in the unfolding of collective leadership. An ethnographic study of three multidisciplinary psychiatric teams."
About the seminar:
My dissertation examines how meaningful encounters contribute to the collective leadership of multidisciplinary teams in children’s psychiatry at a Nordic university hospital. It views collective leadership as a continuous relational process in which all the individuals involved actively participate, and which aims at seeking direction and producing a space for co-action. Adopting a process perspective, the focus is not as much on the individuals as on what meaningful encounters do to the leadership process of the group.
About the researcher:
Leni Grünbaum is a 3rd year doctoral candidate at the Aalto University Business School in Finland, in the Department of Management Studies. After her MSc in international business and business administration, her passion for language and communication led herto work for 12 years in the translation and the publishing industries. Increasingly puzzled by the tensions inherent in organizational interaction, collaboration and leadership, she gradually solidified her knowledge and skills and started working as a professional facilitator and coach. Since 2009, she has been facilitating and coaching teams, leadership teams and other organizational groups as well as coaching individual professionals and executives.
"I am intrigued by how leadership unfolds through social interaction in organizational groups. Specifically, I am interested in the role of encounters in this process, in what makes them meaningful for members, and in the role of aesthetics and sociomateriality in such encounters. I want to contribute to an organizational life in which multiplicity and multivocality are acknowledged as central and valuable for a collective leadership that increases the space for action of group members and enhances their collaboration", Leni Grünbaum says.
