Abstract

The relational processes and practices that create and sustain Grassroots Associations have received limited attention from researchers. This paper addresses this gap, exploring collective leadership of Grassroots Associations through a Leadership-As-Practice lens (Raelin, 2016a, 2016b). It adopts the concept of ‘bundles’ of leadership practice (Schatzki, 2005) to analyse data from a single ethnographic case study. Adopting this conceptual lens, we identify a set of ‘bundles’ of related practices - organising, engaging, accounting - that constitute the enduring reality of the association’s collective leadership.
