"A Panel Discussion on Leadership Development Research and Practice"

This webinar is the second in a series focused on linking leadership development practice, research and theorizing.

Building on the leadership theorizing webinar (click here, *for your convenience start recording at 8 min. mark) held in the fall of 2016, the upcoming webinar will focus on how distinguished scholars advance leadership development theory through research and practice. We hope participants gain information, ideas, tools and approaches that will help them in current or future research projects. Below are the three panelists and their bios. We look forward to "seeing" you on March 28th at 2:00pm EST.
