Erasmus Leadership Conference


The Erasmus Leadership Conference took place from the 17th June until the 19th June 2009 at the Erasmus Centre for Leadership Studies.

There has been and still is a great interest in effective leadership in organizations. Given the recent financial crisis and the economic and political situation of many organizations, this interest in understanding effective leadership seems to be more than ever on our research agenda. Recent developments in the field put on the research agenda many new topics, like ethical leadership, justice and leadership, servant leadership, identity and leadership, leadership and diversity, leadership and creativity, etc. Further, many established leadership topics, like personality, transformational and transactional leadership, LMX, or contingency theories of leadership, have been extended in important ways.

Inspired by these developments, we have organized the Erasmus Leadership Conference. The goal of the conference was to encourage innovative empirical research in this field by bringing together top researchers interested in different aspects of Leadership. The meeting was hosted by the Rotterdam School of Management and organized by the recently founded Erasmus Centre for Leadership Studies, which is part of the Rotterdam School of Management, one of the top three research schools in management in Europe. The conference was financially sponsored by the Erasmus Research Institute of Management (ERIM) and the Erasmus Trustfonds (ref:97090.06/09.0350/etv).

The meeting provided a lively exchange of research ideas and research questions. The 38 participants of the meeting enjoyed the atmosphere of the conference and made the Erasmus Leadership Conference a great success. We hope to see many of the participants next year again.
