Thompson and Glasø awarded The Emerald Literati Awards for Excellence

17 September 2019

Associate Prof. Geir Thompson and Prof. Emeritus Lars Glasø have been awarded a 2019 Highly Commended Paper Literati Award by Emerald Publishing for their paper Situational leadership theory: a test from a leader follower congruence approach.

The paper focuses on the popular Situational Leadership Theory. While it probably is one of the world’s most popular theories in leadership and management training programs, it is as of yet under-researched. This paper is an important contribution to making the widely used theory evidence-based, as opposed to just being intuitively sound.

As such, the authors think SLT in an updated “convergent” version should be applied in organizations and thought in leadership development programs.

Emerald Publishing publishes over 300 journals, and The Emerald Literati Award celebrate the most outstanding papers each year. Winning this award demonstrates that their paper was one of the most impressive contributions to scholarly research last year.
