Leadership Discourse at Work by Stephanie Schnurr

Book Description

Employing a discourse analytical approach this book focuses on the under-researched strategy of humour to illustrate how discursive performances of leadership are influenced by gender and workplace culture. Far from being a superfluous strategy that distracts from business, humour performs a myriad of important functions in the workplace context.

Books By Author Stephanie Schnurr

Exploring Professional Communication by Stephanie Schnurr Exploring Professional Communication, Paperback (August 2012)

The books in this series take an 'practice-to-theory' approach, with a 'back-to-front' structure. This leads the reader from real-world problems and issues, through a discussion of intervention and how to engage with these concerns, before finally relating these practical issues to theoretical foundations.
