Autoethnography offers leadership study opportunities as it allows the texts to move between the self of the subject and the researcher who can themselves be a co-researched subject. In this sense texts moving between 'selves' represents a hermeneutical concern (or ‘language game’); that is it is possible to see the self as a text, in a context, and moving between selves, although not to gain access to the ‘original intent’ of the author; the text in this instance is in ‘our’ hands and as such transforming from the author in a new direction. As such, in this domain: “all understanding is interpretation, and all interpretation takes place in the medium of language which would allow the object to come into words and yet is at the same time the interpreter’s own language” (Gadamer, 1975: 350).
