As one of the leading academic centres for leadership studies in Europe we offer first-class leadership education and research that addresses the challenges and complexities of a diverse and interconnected world.
At CLS we take a critical yet appreciative look at leadership: where it occurs and where it is missing, where it comes from and where it is going. We study leaders, and the claims made about them, as well as the wider social, cultural, economic and environmental contexts in which leadership work is accomplished. We aim to help people and organisations to get ‘leadership’ into perspective – to understand its possibilities and its limitations. This has been our mission since 1997 and is founded on a commitment to both theory and practice.
