Abstract

DAMES, Gordon E. Spiritual and ethical transformational leadership: Critical discourse analysis within a practical theology praxis. Koers (Online) [online]. 2014, vol.79, n.2, pp. 01-08. ISSN 0023-270X.

The objective of this article is to focus renewed attention on ethics in contemporary dialogue through value-based leadership. This is done with reference to the value of meaning in social research and critical discourse analysis within a framework of leadership discourse praxis. Discourse constructs, such as dominance and power, are analysed in the (re)production of oppression, injustice and inequality. The objective is to analyse the way in which human ideas and the actions of powerful and dominant leadership elites are influencing and dominating ethical and/or unethical public enactments. The hypothesis is that ethical discourse enactments (practices) could foster authentic ethical and transformational leadership.
