Work and family in the UK: Perspectives of minority Asian women expatriates
Balancing work and family commitments is challenging for everyone. But what happens when you are an expatriate, cut off from your family support network, and adjusting to a culture with potentially very different expectations around gender roles and the appropriateness of non-family-based childcare? Some of my recent research has explored how expatriate Asian minority women in the UK experience the […]

Leadership development: one size does not fit all
Within the domain of executive education, the concept of leadership development is an increasingly romanticised one. When we say ‘leadership development,’ more often than not, images of executive travel, luxury retreats, world class ‘experts’ delivering ‘high-end management interventions’ spring to mind, with management gurus flown across the globe to impart knowledge on organisational transformation. But the accepted approach taught in […]

Do state owners constrain or facilitate corporate strategies of internationalisation?
A changing landscape The global sources of foreign direct investment is changing, and state-owned enterprises (SOEs) are an increasingly large proportion of the pool of available global capital. In 2013, SOEs invested $US160 billion internationally, representing 11 per cent of global foreign direct investment flows, despite making up 1 per cent of total multinational corporations. SOEs also dominate cross-border M&As: […]

Five steps to scaling social impact

Over the last eight years, much of our research at the LSE’s Innovation and Co-Creation Lab has focused on the question of how sustainable organisational models for large-scale impact can be developed. RLabs: From idea to scale One of the organisations that we have accompanied on their path to […]

Is flirtation an effective negotiation tactic?
When I teach negotiation skills, my students and I explore a variety of strategies for reaching agreement, but we almost never mention flirtation. This may be because there is very little research on flirtation as a negotiation tactic – but it may also be because, as we found in one of our surveys, negotiation students do not consider flirtation to […]

Volkswagen: the need to enforce ethical corporate behaviour
­ DECEIT, FRAUD, REGULATORY EVASIONS, WINDOW DRESSING: words that have become far too familiar in business news headlines. The ongoing Volkswagen emissions scandal is the perfect example of disingenuous corporate malpractice that has had far-reaching consequences for the ordinary customer, shareholder, and any other stakeholder directly or indirectly impacted by the actions of a few. The outrage against the VW Group […]

Bonuses: how much of myth and how much of reality?
The connection between executive compensation schemes and performance was brought into sharp focus again in November 2015 after Deutsche Bank’s co-Chief Executive John Cryan stated that bonuses do not encourage banking executives to work harder. He specified that bankers shouldn’t be rewarded as entrepreneurs, highlighting the underlying belief that bonuses may not drive the behaviours they are intended to drive. […]

Time for change in executive pay?
According to the popular French economist Thomas Piketty, one of the main factors contributing to the growing inequality in the western world is inflated rates of executive pay. Whilst executive pay is frequently the subject of furious political and ethical debate, it too remains a difficult topic for the organisations employing top managers. Despite the fact that it would certainly […]
