Leadership in the Hearts of Myanmar: A Study of How Values, Beliefs and Ethical Assumptions about a Leader Shape Leadership Identities

The aim of this thesis is to investigate the meaning of leadership in a place in Myanmar by examining how it is understood and how it operates. The research tries to understand the leadership phenomenon through the lens of identity and belief system of the people who are practising and experiencing leadership in that place. It employs the hermeneutical narrative enquiry research method with the experience-centred and culturally oriented approach to leadership.
