Presentation Dr. Camilla Sløk, Copenhagen Business School
Leadership and Guilt
I hold a position as Associate Professor at Department of Organization, Copenhagen Business School, since 2005 (16 years).
The key word for my research is ethics and dilemmas, particularly clashes of values between groups and individuals in society; organization and leadership.
My research interests are 1) Leadership and responsibility, 2) Guilt in leadership, private and public sector.
My current research field is responsibility and guilt in leadership. I explore how, when, and why responsibility disappears in organisations. I'm particularly interested in the difference between how leaders understand situations of failure, scandals, and mistakes in one way, while the environment sometimes view the subject of responsibility quite differently. This is not the case when leaders have success. In times of success, most leaders view the success as their own. In times of crises, most leaders view themselves as being less powerful of the organisation than the environment does.
