Gianpiero_PetriglieriGianpiero Petriglieri, Expert on Leadership and Learning in the Workplace

Gianpiero Petriglieri is Associate Professor of Organisational Behaviour at INSEAD, and an expert on leadership and learning in the workplace. His award-winning research and teaching focus on what it means, and what it takes, to become a leader. He is particularly interested in the development of leadership in the age of “nomadic professionalism,” in which people have deep personal bonds to work but loose affiliations to organizations, and authenticity and mobility have replaced loyalty and advancement as hallmarks of virtue and success.

Gianpiero’ research has appeared in leading academic journals such as Administrative Science Quarterly, Academy of Learning & Education, and Organization Studies. He also writes regularly for the Harvard Business Review, where five of his essays have been included among the “ideas that shaped management” in the last decade. His work has been featured in a range of media including the BBC, Financial Times, The Economist, Businessweek, The Washington Post, The Boston Globe, and El Pais. He has chaired the World Economic Forum’s Global Agenda Council on new models of leadership, and was recently named one of the 50 most influential management thinkers in the world by Thinkers50.
