Episode Description

Gill and Jorrit discuss how organizations and researchers combine theory and practice to teach leadership to university students and career professionals. They talk about need for ongoing curiosity and learning at every stage of professional life. The ILA provides a forum for the interchange between scholarship and practice.

The findings are then integrated back into academic work updating what students learn as well as are taught to professionals at Deloitte University to support delivering great outcomes to clients and creating a society that can meet the challenges that continue to emerge. A practical example of current research is: leading and working in the “e” environment. Their combined work will result in new models supporting better practices to create healthy working environments. This research contributes to the 2017 ILA conference, Leading In Turbulent Times.
