The Extra-ordinarization of the Mundane: Encounters Between Liturgy & Leadership With Tim Harle
This paper is inspired by Michael Perham’s passion to present liturgy not as an esoteric discipline, but as something that is vital in everyday parochial life. It takes its title from a paper by two Scandinavian critical management scholars, Alvesson and Sveningsson, who argue that the much-vaunted concept of leadership should really be understood as making mundane things extraordinary. I will explore, perhaps unacknowledged, parallels between liturgy and leadership studies. Examples include transactional and transformational leadership, the relationship between individual and corporate activities, the roles of culture and space, and pedagogy and credal statements.
