This is an attempt to rethink, ultimately forethink, leadership as a collaborative process of writing and what we think leadership might look like in the 21st century. We try to move beyond leadership taking into account complex relations that shape emergent processes of organizing and change. It is a move away from ideas of individual agency and control. Traditional concepts of hierarchy, selective application, linearity and rationality are no longer appropriate. We offer different shades and elaborations. None are complete or finished. The authority of the reader and audience is pivotal. Through multiple engagements with writing we hope to offer glimpses of powerful leadership.
