Title: Storytelling and leadership in the deaf community
Author: Davis Haggerty, Luane
Abstract: This article addresses a gap in scholarship on leadership styles in the Deaf community. There is an invisible style of leadership differing from the mainstream culture that has not been previously addressed in the literature at any depth. This article was intended to begin a discussion addressing this gap. My analysis of literature in the leadership fields, Deaf Studies and Performance Studies indicates a unique style of leadership by Deaf people within a Deaf community that is collaborative in nature yet values the individual. Further studies into Deaf leadership are warranted and may help to uncover this "collective individualist" approach as the community begin to share their story with mainstream culture.
Description: JADARA, the official publication of ADARA. An organization for professionals networking for excellence in service delivery with individuals who are deaf or hard of hearing.
