Research initiatives at the Center for Public Leadership seek to:
- Build a community of scholars exploring theory and practice relevant to leadership;
- and, Encourage and support the research, in a range of disciplines, on the practice of leadership and the attainment of leadership positions.
CPL-affiliated faculty are the foundation of our efforts to bring rigorous research and practical insight to bear on the myriad human and social dimensions of the challenge of leadership. Their research and publishing interests include international relations and foreign policy; presidential politics; the arts of leadership communications; the psychology of leadership; negotiation and conflict management; gender and leadership; status, justice, power, and social influence; emotions, judgment, and decision making; leading groups and teams; social identity theory; and adaptive leadership and creativity.
The initiatives that promote our research community and scholarly work include:
- The Leadership Research Seminar series, which brings visiting scholars, and scholars from across Harvard, to the Center to give talks on subjects in many disciplines related leadership;
- Faculty research grants, awarded to encourage new research in disciplines related to leadership;
- Conferences designed to bring together multidisciplinary groups of scholars and spark new thinking and research;
- Visiting scholars, invited to the Center for up to a year to join the research community here and pursue their leadership-related interests.
We invite you to explore our research initiatives further in these pages and welcome your thoughts and comments.
