Leadership journeys, dilemmas, and maps
This chapter starts our leadership journey by introducing the approach to leadership
development based on the metaphors of map-reading, map-testing, and map-making.
You will become familiar with the ways maps are constructed when they are based on the
Dominant Rational Model (DRM) of knowledge management. Its influence has been
pervasive for so long in educational and professional fields that it is largely taken for
granted. You will learn how the DRM gained ascendancy over earlier beliefs about the
workings of the natural world, thus paving the way for the methods of scientific reasoning
and rational actions in modern civilizations around the world.
