8/19 – New Directions – International Studying Leadership Conference


New Directions in Leadership Studies: Exploring the Critical Turn
Lancaster University
13th–15th December 2015

In 2015 the International Studying Leadership Conference returns to Lancaster University Management School. Having hosted the Conference in 2003 and 2005, as well as having launched the Leadership journal in 2005, Lancaster provides an ideal setting for debates and discussions about important new directions for leadership and leadership development.

Within the burgeoning literature on leadership, there is an increasing recognition that mainstream leader-centred assumptions, functionalist theories and positivist methodologies carry significant limitations. Yet, there is much less agreement about what an alternative approach to studying, teaching, developing and enacting leadership might look like. This major international conference provides a timely opportunity for participants to explore the potential of the diverse but increasingly influential perspectives that have come to be known as ‘critical leadership studies’.
