Leadership Behaviours in Dynamic Conditions PhD Scholarship
A PhD scholarship is available to undertake research on the project, 'Switching Gears: Training Team Leaders and Members to Adapt Leadership Behaviours in Dynamic Conditions', 2017-2020, funded by the Army Research Institute (W911NF-15-R-0007). This project addresses a fundamental question in the study of team leadership: how team leaders effectively transition between different leadership styles under changing situations. Thus, the current project focus on the underlying processes and requirements of this form of adaptive leadership by studying adaptive leadership behaviours as situations transition between routine and non-routine. We designed an integrated series of eight studies (seven laboratory studies and one field study) with the objectives of: 1) providing an empirical test of the role of adaptive leadership in helping teams to transition between routine and non-routine situations; 2) identifying the cognitive requirements on the individual and team levels for effective leadership switches; 3) identifying leader and team behaviours that can be associated with effective leadership style switching; and 4) developing and testing leadership training aimed at increasing leader flexibility. This research project will contribute to develop training programs for leaders and teams that can adapt quickly to dynamic missions.
