Cambridge University, 2017
On October 2017 I participated in a panel on leaders, followers and populism, which became an energetic dialogue. It was held at the Moller Centre, Churchill College and organized by the James McGregor Burns Academy of Leadership, University of Cambridge.
Georgia Sorenson who chairs the Academy, has invited me to be a Cambridge Visiting Scholar for the coming year. I am looking forward to using that platform to further explore how courageous followership creates better leadership.
Cambridge is the site of the 800 year old university whose 31 colleges are found everywhere in that historic town. Only Oxford is older. Burns is widely regarded as the father of leadership studies based on his groundbreaking 1978 book “Leadership”.
