The Leadership Excellence Institute Zeppelin | LEIZ, represented by Prof Josef Wieland and Albert Luthuli Center for Responsible Leadership from the University of Pretoria, South Africa, represented by Prof Derick de Jongh will hold a panel symposium at the Academy of Management's Specialised Conference on Responsible Leadership in Rising Economies. The Symposium, ‘Collaborative Leadership for the SDGs: Implications for Developed and Developing Economies’, is scheduled for October 23rd to 25th, 2019 in Bled, Slovenia.
Our panel consists of experts from developed and emerging economies who are engaged in critical discussion on the topic of Collaborative Leadership as a means of meeting the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), with a focus on inter-sectoral partnerships. Our panelists offer perspectives on how collaborative leadership contributes to the SDGs through intersectoral partnerships. In addition to that, they will be adressing relational economics and relational leadership.
After the presentation of critical hypotheses pertaining to implications of collaborative leadership in inter-sectoral partnerships, panelists and audience are invited to join in the discussion. Particularly critical implications for both, practitioners and the academic research community are addressed in terms of a link between leadership research and SDGs.
The symposium provides critical, creative, and socially relevant perspectives on what is required to transform business and society while addressing global challenges.

LEIZ Communication Management
Roots of the Academy of Management (AOM) can be traced back to November 1936 when Professor Charles L. Jamison of the University of Michigan and William N. Mitchell of the University of Chicago were communicating by mail with several management teachers in order to invite them to a meeting. The first meeting took place at the Quadrangle Club, University of Chicago where they discussed the forming of an institution of educators to give the philosophy of management a new impetus. All professors present at the meeting agreed to call the new institution “The Acadademy of Management”. Whilst during World War II no meetings were held work commenced in 1947 again. In 2016 AOM moved to it’s new head quarters in Briarcliff Manor, NY.
The AOM publishes various academic journals, runs conferences, and provides forums for management professors as well as managers to communicate research and new ideas.
