Report Dissemination Meeting: Implementation of
Contextual Leadership Recommendation
September 23, 2014

The National Academies
500 Fifth Street, NW
Room 103
Washington, DC 20001

AGENDA


Framing Questions:
• Is there a synergy across current theories of leadership that could facilitate a more holistic approach to future research? In what other ways are leadership theories distinct, and how can they be disentangled? Consider, for example, contextual leadership (as described in the report), authentic leadership (at a broad level), leader-member exchange (at a dyadic level), and situational leadership (as described in DoD doctrine and the report).

• Is there a current or emerging theoretical framework that might be useful in implementing the report’s recommendation on contextual leadership research? Is this likely to build on existing theory or require development of a new framework?

• How can future leadership research build on, integrate, or otherwise advance the science of leadership in meaningful ways? How might research programs avoid producing yet another leadership theory to “toss on the pile” of extant theories?

• What technical or methodological advances are on the horizon that could improve the existing capabilities to measure and assess leadership potential, characteristics, or outcomes?

• Given the content of the chapter on contextual leadership and today’s discussion, what areas of potential future research are likely to have the highest payoff in improving organizational effectiveness over the next 10-15 years?
