Global Research & Innovation Projects & Initiatives
Since the 1970s, CCL has built its portfolio of programs, products and services on a solid foundation of behavioral science research. CCL continues to work on many research projects to develop knowledge and expertise.
When the leadership process in a group is effective, three crucial outcomes are produced: direction, alignment, and commitment (DAC). The goal of this project is to create useful and sound measures of DAC in groups.
The Future of Leadership Assessment
Assessment processes that provide data relevant to the leadership functioning of individuals and groups have been a cornerstone of CCL's leadership development practice.
Interdependent Leadership in a Complex World
This project aims to understand leadership as the collective achievement of people working together in an increasingly interdependent world.
Network Approaches to Leadership
This project examines networks at the individual, group, organizational and societal level to generate insights that will help leaders and collectives as a whole develop network perspective and build more effective networks.
Neuroscience and Leadership
This project translates some of the latest findings from neuroscience for use in the enhancement and acceleration of leadership development. The project identifies, explores, and tests relevant neuroscience-based findings for application to leadership development.
This project examines how men and women are perceived in the workplace; particularly how interpersonal perceptions of "being bossy" can affect workplace outcomes.
This research project focuses on helping virtual teams achieve greater success through the management of virtual team polarities. Polarities are ongoing pairs that appear to be in opposition to each other, but in truth, they're complimentary and interdependent.
This project provides information on trends in leadership wherever it happens, as well as issues that leaders have to deal with every day such as what employees want in their leaders, trust and ethics in effective organizations, employee engagement and retention, and attitudes about work.
Virtual Leadership Learning Research & Evaluation
This project is seeking to expand the knowledge regarding how virtual or digital learning can enhance, support, or supplant other types of approaches to accelerate the development of leaders.
