Abstract

Legitimacy is a critical component underpinning a leader's effective sensegiving. Yet the events or outcomes that demand sensegiving can simultaneously introduce ambiguity about that leader's right to lead. Leaders therefore need to account for fluctuations in their legitimacy, yet few papers address how leaders employ different sensegiving practices over time, and do so in a way to maintain their ongoing legitimacy.
