Greensboro, NC – Experts from around the world will gather in Greensboro from June 2-4, 2014 for the Thought Forum on Network Leadership and Leadership Networks.
Organized in partnership with the University of Cincinnati, the event will host leading scholars who work at the intersection of collective leadership and network science. Over the course of three days, attendees will examine such topics as “The Science of Leadership & Networks,” and “Applications Integrating Leadership & Network Development.”
The forum will encourage peer sharing and dialogue with the goal of expanding the field. Afterward, participants will be encouraged to submit manuscripts for a special issue of Leadership Quarterly on collective and network approaches to leadership (click here to access the call for papers).
“We view the integration of these areas as the cutting edge of leadership theory, research and practice,” said Charles J. Palus, a senior faculty member at CCL and co-organizer of the conference. “We are continuing to build a community of peers who are leaders in this domain.”
