The School is at the cutting edge of research into leadership. The core faculty interests range from applied evaluation of leadership development processes, to the philosophical underpinnings of modern leadership, and we have some of the most respected academics working here.
The Centre for Leadership Studies (CLS) seeks to challenge accepted truths about leadership practice, theory and development to shed new light on what has become perhaps the most desired yet elusive phenomenon of our times. Some the topics currently being researched are as follows; Informal leadership; Leading FTSE companies; The gender pay gap in managerial positions; Leadership and procurement skills for climate change; Leadership – relating to ethics, innovation and change.
