The conference aims to bring public policy practitioners and leadership scholars together, across disciplines, to facilitate interdisciplinary leadership research. Research incubator roundtables are scheduled for the morning of October 7, and research teams formed at the conference will be eligible to apply for small grants to facilitate research ideas that emerge.
Invited papers for the conference will explore attributes and behaviors of integrative leaders, accountability for outcomes, leadership development, integrative leadership theory and practice. Presenters include Jerry Hunt, Sonia Ospina, Michael McQuire, Thomas Maak, Sara Dodd, John Bryson, Barbara Crosby, Robert Denhardt, James Perry, Joyce Bono, Rosemary O’Leary (in formation). Selected conference papers will appear in a special issue of The Leadership Quarterly on integrative public leadership.
