Our Ideas are executive summaries of the latest emerging research and thinking from the world's leading business schools and institutions on leadership and management practice topics.


Original research is written in a dense and often impenetrable style, Ideas for Leaders' expert editors identify the best research emerging from thought-leaders through our strong relationship with top business schools, and translate these into accessible short articles complete with business application and links to the original sources and authors.


The Ideas can be used to inspire new thinking, support change initiatives, keep abreast of emerging best practice, catalyse discussion and dialogue and encourage improved management habits and behaviours.


Ideas are valuable for consultants seeking fresh research for clients; leadership development practitioners and HR managers to substantiate their work; executives and managers to create new conversations on management practice.

"Research undertaken at business schools has the potential to make a significant impact in the commercial world – it's just getting it out there. This is why Ideas for Leaders is so important: it bridges that gap between academia and the corporate world."
