Drawing on a longitudinal, multi-source exploratory study we investigate organizational leadership systems associated with sensegiving. We identified four elements of leadership systems: day-to-day interactive process, leadership metrics, leadership deployment and leadership development. Integrating these analyses across 37 multinational corporations, we show that the leadership system landscape is complex and ambiguous and, therefore, a trigger for leader sensegiving. Given the bounded rationality of individuals a complex and ambiguous leadership surrounding requires leaders to engage in sensegiving rather than in other influencing strategies.
