Research overview

Current research project

My research project is grounded in the intersection of leadership literature and organisational goals, gender and leadership, and emotions and leadership literatures. Within these literatures I have identified gaps in existing knowledge and formulated the following research question: “What are the perceived roles of felt emotions, displayed emotions, and emotional regulation in the experiences of women leaders with regard to their reported leadership behaviours and their perceived leadership efficacy?” I will seek to answer this question by engaging in a qualitative research methodology, using opportunity sampling and snowball sampling to gain participants (notably, women leaders in the UK Higher education sector) and conducting semi-structured interviews for data collection. I will then employ thematic analysis to engage in theory development, establish the groundwork and value of further research on the proposed research area, and provide meaningful and ethical research to contribute to existing knowledge and practice.
