Leadership under radical uncertainty
Having worked with many aspects of the HR portfolio at global level, both strategically and operationally in many industries, in C-Level as well as board membership, leadership and radical uncertainty are two aspect of organisational development I am interested most – my research question will explore these two topics and their measurement in influencing performativity.
Originally from Brazil, over the past 21 years, I have been working, studying and living in many European countries (France, England, Scotland, Wales, Sweden and Denmark). My academic background is in Human Resources Manager (Pg/MSc) with (Executive) MBA attained from University of Strathclyde (UK) and Copenhagen Business School (Denmark), respectively.
I look forward to embarking on this exciting journey and furtherer my contribution to the discussion around the ever-changing measurement for successful leadership in organisations.
Research on future cognition and leadership development have analysed events predominantly from an episodic perspective and have focused primarily on the capacity of the individual to respond to situations where there is no agreed solution and where the challenge in itself may be completely novel. Very limited attention has been paid to how future cognition can be used together with leadership development to understand the impact on leadership as the authority gained in the hierarchy of the organisation as well as followship.
My aim with this dissertation is to build on existing research from various disciplines (psychology, neuroscience and leadership) to measure the process of developing an organisational framework to draw connections and distinctions between various forms of future thinking that serve different functions for adaptive behaviour. I will enquire into what leaders focus on in the process of imaging or stimulating events that may occur in their personal future when appointed to a new leadership role.
These findings may contribute to a new theoretical perspective looking at future cognition and facilitate a better understanding of how leadership development takes place in the leaders’ attainment of their imagined future self
