Announcing a New Scholar Leadership-as-Practice Research Workshop

  • 1.  Announcing a New Scholar Leadership-as-Practice Research Workshop

    Posted 14 days ago

    We are pleased to announce a Leadership-As-Practice (L-A-P) Research Workshop for new scholars of leadership-as-practice. The workshop will be held twice to encourage scholars from different time zones to participate. New scholars could be doctoral, early career, or researchers in transition. This workshop is endorsed by the ODC Division of the Academy of Management.

    Our intention is to build a support network for ongoing scholarship in this new and exciting field as it contributes to, and in some cases, "re-forms" leadership theory and practice.

    During the three-hour online workshop conducted on Zoom, new L-A-P researchers will meet with senior coaches to delve into collaborative work projects, peer review, field studies, and practical applications. These new scholars will assemble with the coaches in small ratios to provide the greatest opportunity for individual attention and feedback. New L-A-P scholars can apply by filling out a short application here.

    The Leadership-As-Practice (L-A-P) Research Committee is co chaired by:

    Joe Raelin, Donald Gordon Visiting Professor of Leadership, University of Cape Town Grad School of Business

    Brandon W. Kliewer, Associate professor, Staley School of Leadership Studies

    Kerry L. Priest, Associate professor, Staley School of Leadership Studies

    Jenny Robinson, Teaching Fellow, Cranfield School of Management; and Henley Business School
