As leadership concepts emerged in this qualitative
study it became apparent that the students''
leadership understandings were part content, part
process, and part articulation. One of the key
findings to emerge was the important role language
and framing played in the students'' sensemaking and
articulation of their leadership understandings.
Remarkably, the author came into this research
prepared to make explicit the students'' denotative
leadership understandings, but came away from the
study with a clearer understanding of language and
framing, leadership throw, and the powerful argument
this makes for nurturing student voice at all levels.
