Abstract

The strategic leadership narratives are focused only on individual leader's accounts; this is due to the lack of research methods permitting researchers to collect data from these individual strategic leaders. There is a paucity of literature in both academic research textbooks and published articles on 'joint-interviews' as a data collection instrument, in particular in relation to research on strategic leadership. In other disciplines, for example in the Sociology of Health, the use of this research method has considerably helped to understand relationship issues between married couples, labourmarket decision for low income and high income households, and finance. This article relates the experience developed in conducting joint-interviews with some of the most powerful actors in an organisation in the context of Higher Education. This experience indicates and suggests that further practical steps are needed to be taken to enrich the contextual study of this sub-category of leadership research.
