The HCELs guiding theme: 'To explore, investigate, understand, and advance new forms, practices, and sources of engaging leadership in global contexts and in doing so creating significant intellectual insights, stimulation and practical support for leadership'.
The Henley Centre for Engaging Leadership (HCEL) was founded in 2013 to advance Henley Business School's strong heritage and reputation for academic and practical contribution to leadership and developing organisational and individual leadership capability.
The HCEL embraces the richness and diversity of leadership research and practice. It is inclusive and values a variety of approaches to the thinking and practice of leadership and building leadership capactiy. This is represented in the diversity of interests and expertise among the HCEL team, its partners and the doctoral students.
