Abstract [en]

Organizations are complex adaptive systems comprised of heterogeneous agentsinteracting in unplanned ways. According to complexity theory, emergent events occur atvarious levels within a system, and within organizations. The focus in this paper is at the microlevelof analysis. We describe leadership emergence within groups and describe how innovativeaction and communication results from this emergence. In particular, we specify how leadershipemerges at the individual, dyadic, and group level within events. Taking the complex systemsleadership theory (CSLT) approach as a starting point, we describe how micro-enactments, whichconsist of the individual behaviors of heterogeneous agents as they interact with one another,create organized programs of action that are subject to evolving group dynamics and show howthis process can be described as self-organizing by observers who are unaware of theintentionality of the individual agents. Seven micro-enactments are described, along with aframework for examining how they assemble, intersect, and influence one another to enableorganized learning, action, innovation, and change, both at the group level, and subsequently atthe organizational level, and how they can be assessed. Suggestions for shaping and guidingmicro-enactments to generate effective leadership within public sector organizations areprovided.
