Our mission is to foster interconnectivity and create linkages that allow us to develop meaningful new frameworks for investigating and practicing leadership. Our aspirations are to:
Break down silos among the various approaches and disciplines in the study of leadership
Create research partnerships among scholars and practitioners around the world to propel the advancement of significant new knowledge
The Network of Leadership Scholars helps our scholarly community better meet the needs of its constituents of scholars and practitioners. Leadership represents a powerful social concern relative to business and nonprofit organizations, as well as to political, environmental, social, health, and economic issues. As a community of scholars we can bring visibility to key issues of the day, including recent world events on business and political fronts (e.g., ethical leadership, sustainability, corporate governance, public policy, the military, education, etc.).
