Our Research

Traditional research into leadership has focused on the leader as a person and how potential leaders can be trained in certain effective behaviours. But this approach ignores the critical role of the follower.

Recognising that leadership doesn’t happen in an empty space, our research incorporates thinking around how it’s shaped by the characteristics of followers. This includes investigating how followers’ needs and expectations influence not only how they view and evaluate their leader, but also how far they willingly follow the leader and engage with organisational goals. At the same time, we are interested in how followers contribute to and shape the leadership process.
