'Economics and Leadership' conference

Datum:28 juni 2017

From June 7th till 9th, In the LEAD organized the first ‘Economics and Leadership’ conference in Groningen. The conference focused on research at the cross-roads of economics and leadership and brought together leading international economic and leadership scholars. Several top-economists and psychologists, such as Kathryn Shaw (Stanford U), John Antonakis (HEC Lausanne), Michael Kosfeld (Goethe U Frankfurt), Christian Zehnder (HEC Lausanne), Roberto Weber (U of Zurich) and Holger Herz (Fribourg U), presented their work.

Also, Kathryn Shaw, John Antonakis and Michael Kosfeld were interviewed to discuss their work, see:

Related to the topic of the conference, a special issue of The Leadership Quarterly will be dedicated to the topic of ‘Economics and Leadership’.  Based on a clearly discernible increase of the relevance of leadership in economic research as well as economic factors in traditional leadership models—which goes along with a call from the leadership literature to consider economic factors more seriously—this special issue will bring together research at the cross-roads of economics and leadership.  The Call for papers can be found here.
