By Sharla Hooper

Quarterly research publication evaluates leadership roles and opportunities across a variety of societal sectors

University of Phoenix has released the latest issue of its Journal of Leadership Studies (JLS), Winter 2022, featuring a symposium on the role and practice of listening in leadership.

Feature articles of the current issue include an exploration of the impact of transformational leadership aspects on Leader-Member Exchange Theory and a second study comparing Daoist water-like and agentic leadership styles in relation to the role and perception of gender in leaders.

“The JLS continues to provide a valuable contribution to the evolution of theory and practice of leadership,” states Hinrich Eylers, Ph.D., P.E., Editor-in-Chief of the JLS, and vice provost, College of Doctoral Studies at University of Phoenix. “The JLS is a space where both leadership practitioners and scholars have opportunities to publish research and be part of a community discussion representing a wide range of methodological approaches and theoretical foundations of leadership.”

The Journal of Leadership Studies is a quarterly academic research publication, produced by Wiley, on behalf of the University of Phoenix College of Doctoral Studies, that provides opportunities for scholars including doctoral students, faculty members, and practitioners to publish their research. The Journal synthesizes theory with real-world practical experience of tested leaders. It helps position quality academic scholarship so it can impact organizational decision-making.
