    Abstract

    We present a project where constructivist techniques (repertory grid interview, focus group and diary-ingroup) were combined in participative, action research. The process sustained the development of leadership and praxis through (1) individual reflection grounded in personal experiences and (2) group reflection through the shared and revised construing of pertinent issues. Throughout the project the participating managers addressed matters important to them in their professional role. The short extracts of data presented give an insight in the managers’ complex work situation, the dilemmas that they are facing and how they were stimulated to address the problems arising.
