Eveline detects a new linkage, through shared experience, of administrative staff, research assistants and the lower order of academics, who increasingly are casual workers. And she discerns a courageous and almost invisible exercise of leadership. This 'post-heroic' leadership values personal relationship (one aspect of which is teaching), loyalty and diversity. It is creative, flexible and, above all, collaborative. Ivory Basement Leadership will hearten those dismayed by the restructuring pandemic. For ivory basement workers have, in adversity, forged a leadership model that might well be mobilised to revive our ailing universities.
