State-of-the-art research on the effectiveness of leadership

Leadership is essential for the effective functioning of both organisations and society at large. At centre of expertise In the LEAD (Leadership, Evidence, Advice & Data), we provide organisations with state-of-the-art research on the effectiveness of leadership. We also deliver tailored advice and present lectures and talks to professionals and organisations.

It is our mission to support organisations and strategic leaders by means of scientific research and education in making effective choices, based on the context in which they operate. This involves bringing together the knowledge of our economists, leadership and management experts, and giving clear, research-based advice.
