Professor Doris Schedlitzki

Doris joined London Metropolitan University in May 2020 as Professor in Organisational Leadership. Previously she worked as an Associate Professor and Faculty Lead for Apprenticeships at University of the West of England and prior to that as Senior Lecturer in HRM and OB with Oxford Brookes University. Doris’ main research focus is on leadership and explores the areas of cultural studies of leadership, discourse and leadership, leadership as identity, psychoanalytic approaches to leadership and the role of national language within cultural leadership studies. She is currently involved in several projects and collaborations related to these different areas with UK and international colleagues in leadership and management studies, history and linguistics.

Her secondary research interest is exploring the nature, purpose and use of blended learning approaches and developing innovative methods for critical reflection and leadership development pedagogy. Recent publications include articles in Leadership, Scandinavian Journal of Management, Management Learning, International Journal of Management Reviews, Human Relations, International Journal of Management Education, as well as a textbook on Leadership entitled 'Studying Leadership: Traditional and Critical Approaches' (Sage) – currently in its second edition – and an edited book on Worldly Leadership (Palgrave).

Doris has longstanding experience in designing and delivering modules and course on leadership, personal and professional development, organisational analysis and research methods.
