About this Centre

Based in the Department of Leadership and Management, this centre takes advantage of the continued interest in leadership. It builds on the Department’s global and pioneering reputation in developing and enhancing leadership studies and practice, through our impactful research.

We develop critical and alternative understandings of the theory and practice of organisational leading that advance theoretical debates.  In our work, we seek to address the broad questions of ‘leadership for whom, for what and in what ways?’ Accordingly, the themes which underpin our research are emotions and authenticity, entrepreneurial leaders and leadership, gender and diversity, governance and performance, international leadership and leadership in non-Western cultures, learning and development, and responsibilities, purposes and ethics.
