LeaderBeing: Critical Reflections on Context, Character and Challenge in the Culture of Research and Its Administration
Gabriele, Edward F.; Caines, Vaughan V.
Research Management Review, v20 n1 2014
Servant leadership is a critical concept for understanding the ongoing importance of research administration as a central profession of service within the culture of research itself. The leadership of research administrators is both a unique gift and a challenge to the research culture. To ensure the continued productivity of the research enterprise, while respecting its wider and more powerful mission of service to the public trust, research administrators have a critically important role that can open the research enterprise to new depths, unprecedented possibilities, and unforeseen horizons of opportunity. Providing for these expansive missions necessitates that the research administrator as servant leader understands and courageously enters into the dynamic, never-ending processes of "LeaderBeing."
