About the Lab

UFLL long logo and slogan 2

Founded in 2003 and directed by Dr. Joyce Bono, the Leadership Lab is an organizational research laboratory that partners with businesses and other organizations to learn more about how we can develop better leaders.

Some of our newest work focuses on developing students as leaders. Our research benefits the local community on two levels. First, students and workers who participate in our projects can learn from expert feedback designed to build skills that will help them get—and keep—jobs. Second, our findings are helping build researchers’ knowledge about important topics like leadership and influence—knowledge we share with our students so they can create the next generation of great organizations.
