The paper explores co-produced autoethnography in the development of situated leadership practice of a Chief Operating Officer (COO). The argument for using an autoethnographic approach is in response to accepted problems of researching the development of leadership practice. The approach of a co-produced narrative is outlined and illustrated with two empirical accounts. The paper makes a contribution to understanding the usefulness of autoethnographic research and its justification as a suitable method for social scientists to use alongside more traditional approaches.
