ESMT Center for Leadership Development Research (CLDR)
"The Chair" by artist Volker Werner.
The ESMT Center for Leadership Development Research brings together academics, educators, and practitioners in the field of leadership development with the aim to enhance our understanding of leadership development in modern organizations. We are particularly interested in studying how companies support their employees in making transitions to leader roles, how people embrace or create opportunities for learning to lead, and how leadership in organizations evolves. We also engage in research and practice of Executive Coaching as a professional service aimed at helping current and aspiring leaders realize their potential for the benefit of organizations and societies. The Center is a platform for collaboration between professors, faculty professionals, practitioners, and executive coaches interested in promoting a better understanding of leadership development and experimenting with leadership development methods and tools.
This annual event is organized in cooperation with the Kets de Vries Institute (KDVI).

Bringing together cases written by experienced leadership and executive coaches from all over the world, this project explores the most demanding and challenging situations they have faced in their professional practices. By analysing and reflecting on the real life case studies the authors show how to deal with these situations in daily life. This book is an outcome of the CLDR’s series of ESMT Coaching Colloquia started in 2009.
