Social Capital and Leadership Discussion
March 19, 2021 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm UTC+0Free
This week we will have a discussion on social capital and leadership facilitated by Marion Cornish and Beverly Sloan.
Social capital is currently a hot topic in leadership literature and a potentially useful framework for understanding leadership. This session will explore the linkages between social capital and two commonly accepted models of leadership: Authentic Leadership and Servant Leadership. The session will start with short presentations by Marion Cornish and Beverly Sloan followed by a discussion focused on leadership analysis based on social capital emergence and how this relates to the current leadership literature.

Do you want to present your research? Giving a short presentation to the group can be great practice for confirmation, thesis defense, or rehearsal for conference presentations. It can really help to formulate your ideas, get feedback on your research, and discuss your project.
Presentations can be helpful at various stages of your research program. In the early stages it can be helpful to get feedback from the group to help formulate your research, and later in your research to make sense of the data and practice presenting your final results.
