Centre for Leadership Studies showcased in Association of MBAs journal
Academics from the Centre for Leadership Studies (CLS) have had a number of pieces of work featured in a recent two-part special issue of the Business Leadership Review, a journal produced by the Association of MBAs. The theme was ‘Making the Transition to a Green Economy: Implications for leadership and management education’.
In the first part, issued in October 2011, Richard Bolden wrote an editorial on ‘The nature of the challenge and a framework for action’. This issue also incorporated work from Ward Crawford a CLS Fellow, called ‘When business says sustainability and means corporate responsibility: Evidence and implications’; an item from Steve Venton a One Planet MBA student about ‘Why sensemaking is needed for environmental leadership’; and Sue Chapman, a PhD student and CLS affiliate contributed a book review of Leadership for Sustainability: An Action Research Approach.
The second part, issued in January 2012, included a further editorial from Richard which built on his previous piece and was entitled ‘Developing and implementing a response’. In addition, Wenjin Dai, Parisa Gilani & Caroline Rook, all PhD students co-authored an article ‘Responding to complex global challenges: A simple matter of education?’ and Jonathan Gosling, Jackie Bagnall & Richard Bolden used a recent case study from the recent International Leadership Association Conference, which Jonathan chaired to write a piece entitled ‘Keynote Listening: turning the tables on the sage on the stage’.
Richard Bolden commented “The Business School is fast building a reputation for expertise in the sustainability arena, spearheaded by the One Planet MBA. As leadership professionals, CLS academics and students should have much to contribute to the debate”.
