CMI are delighted to invite you to attend this event held in collaboration with the British Academy of Management and CIPD.

Leadership academics are often told that they should improve the impact of their work, without necessarily receiving much guidance on how to achieve this aim.  Professional bodies carry out their own leadership research, to meet the needs of their members often without linking to the work being done in an academic environment.  In both contexts, research aims to understand leadership, followership and the impact of a range of strategies for improving workplace outcomes.

Our aim is to bring together researchers and practitioners from academic and management contexts.  We will outline the latest research being conducted in both environments and discuss how closer ties between the two worlds has been achieved and could be further developed.
