Several members of the Coaching Research Lab (CRL) at the Weatherhead School of Management had multiple symposia accepted through peer-review process at this year’s 83rd Annual Meeting of the Academy of Management (AOM)

The Academy of Management meeting—which took place last month in Boston—convenes scholars from around the world for a chance to expand research collaborations, network with colleagues, and disseminate knowledge addressing the 21st century’s most pressing challenges related to management, leadership, academic research and other related topics. 

“We were grateful for the work of the Coaching Research Lab scholars, friends and colleagues to be so well-represented at the academy,” said Ellen Van Oosten, CRL director. “For many of us, it was the first time in four years that we were together in person so that alone was a highlight. But then the chance to discuss our research and engage with respected colleagues from around the world was energizing, gratifying and memorable.”
