On 4 December 2014, I will publicly defend my PhD thesis titled One style fits all? A study on the content, effect, and origins of follower expectations of ethical leadership at the VU University Amsterdam.
In my dissertation, I study the range of followers’ assumptions, beliefs, and expectations of ethical leaders and leadership (i.e., their implicit ethical leadership theories) and examine how these relate to structural characteristics of their work environment and to their subsequent perceptions of a leader’s behavior. Interested in the results? Check out the summary in English or in Dutch. The full thesis will be published as a book later this year.
