By grounding our research in the everyday practices of leaders, we ensure that our research has relevance and value both for organizations and for leaders. 

Thought-leadership and expertise

The focus of our research is on the existing issues facing individual leaders and organisations and, more crucially, future global trends. 

Our research covers a wide range of topics that are critical to personal and organizational success in today’s competitive, fast-moving climate. These include long-term research interests in sustainability and changing demographics.
Recent ground-breaking research has investigated the impact of lack of sleep on the physical health, business, and personal lives of managers, and the growing importance of mindfulness amongst leaders.
