Spiritual-Based Leadership Research
The Tyson Center for Faith and Spirituality in the Workplace is working with William and Debra Miller and the Global Dharma Center to expand the six-year in depth study they conducted with Peter Pruzan and Kirsten Pruzan Mikkelsen. We will be recruiting a small number of select researchers to be trained in the research protocol and to help collect more interview data with leaders who have a spiritual base in the way that they lead. Click here to read about the data that has been collected thus far and the research methods that were used.
