Understanding Global Leadership Research
Dr. Eva Anneli Adams, Executive Director of Global Initiatives at Cal Poly Pomona, is one of five authors featured in the International Leadership Journal, Summer 2013 edition. This prestigious peer reviewed, online journal is published three times a year by Thomas Edison State College in Trenton, New Jersey.
Dr. Adams’ paper entitled, "Context, Culture, and Cognition: The Significant Factors of Global Leadership Research," centers on the sociology of leadership and explores existing research with a focus on the social and cultural context of leadership.
The featured piece also examines common elements woven throughout past and present global leadership research and focuses on how leaders became who they are, and why they exhibit certain characteristics.
Dr. Adams joined the College of the Extended University in June 2012 as executive director of global initiatives, overseeing the administration and activities at the International Center and the Cal Poly English Language Institute. In addition, she manages international program development and administration of the college's global education programs.
