Presentation

My research interests include leadership, organizational philosophy, the relation between work and play, theological motifs in management thinking, and academic work. I am currently working on two main projects: 1) a sociological study of gamification and digital management in high performance organizations and 2) a philosophical exploration of the relation between leading and commanding. I am the author of Leadership and Organization: A Philosophical Introduction (Routledge, 2018), and Associate Editor of the journal Organization.
