During the last few decades, technology has increasingly impacted how we collaborate. While technology enables communication and collaboration across geographical distances, it also has important implications for relationships and interactions. In particular, it has implications for how leadership is accomplished, as the virtual context in itself imposes certain challenges for the interaction. A number of previous studies have focused on leadership in interaction and have, through micro-studies, shed light on how leadership is accomplished within mundane, everyday work collaboration. Through recordings of virtual meetings from eight different teams in five different companies, ethnomethodological coding of these meetings, and fine-grained conversation analysis, this dissertation sheds light on how leadership is accomplished in a virtual context, as well as the role of leadership in this complex context.
