Resource description

The global dimension of leadership is becoming a key area of interest for leadership research, says Cristina Escallon, director of the INSEAD Leadership Initiative, speaking on the sidelines of the first INSEAD-Wharton Research Conference on Leadership.

Most leadership research around the world is based on US-centric models, be it US companies or American leaders. This is because the US is where most academic developments have taken place in this field over the last couple of decades. “But the world has moved on and we need to ensure a much more representative description and understanding of leadership,” Escallon told INSEAD Knowledge.
