Here at the Centre for Leadership Studies we look at leadership, where it occurs and where it is missing, where it comes from and where it is going. We study leaders, and we also study the claims made about them – we get leadership into perspective. This has been our mission since 1997, and as an integral part of the University of Exeter we continue to be at the leading edge of contemporary research and teaching.
