We are also excited to highlight two additional sessions focused on leadership research.

9:45AM-11:15AM Meaningful Mentoring to Develop High Quality Leadership Research
Anaheim Convention Center, 202B

The focus of the session will be on developing theoretical foundations and designing high quality empirical studies. We promote use of various methods that would benefit from collaborations with other scholars; e.g., multiple comparative case studies, incident diaries, field experiments. This is a great opportunity for junior scholars to develop their ideas, and to establish new collaborative relationships. This session is focused on work in progress; it is not suited for participants with completed research projects.

Potential participants must email a brief research proposal to Dr. Marie Dasborough by July 22, 2016 (Email: In the email submission, participants should indicate if they are a doctoral student or faculty member. They should also indicate their top 3 preferences for who they would like to work with from the list of senior leader scholars. Participants will then be notified by email if their proposal was accepted for discussion.
