Recent Projects

CLOE produces and is connected to the latest leadership and organizational effectiveness research. 

We use that innovative research when working on projects and collaborating with organizations. Below are highlights from some of our recent projects:

Leader Humility, Team Proactive Personality and Team Performance Capability

The Center for Leadership and Organizational Effectiveness supports high quality research and scholarship such as this study: “Initiating and Utilizing Shared Leadership in Teams: The Role of Leader Humility, Team Proactive Personality, and Team Performance Capability” by Chia-Yen (Chad) Chiu, Bradley P. Owens and Paul E. Tesluk. Published in Journal of Applied Psychology.

Organizational Vision and Change

CLOE is working with a regional senior care multi-facility organization as it undertakes an ambitious strategy of growth and expansion. CLOE has been assisting in the crafting of a new mission and vision, assessing the organization’s capabilities for growth and innovation and working with the organization’s leadership team to implement a long-term change strategy to support a culture of innovation and growth.

Strategic Analysis and Alignment

CLOE has been assisting a unit in the University at Buffalo as it develops a new strategic plan. A team from CLOE is working closely with departmental and unit faculty and administrators to identify the best ways to use faculty and staff time, expertise and resources to achieve their teaching, research and outreach goals.

Team Design, Development and Implementation

CLOE has been supporting the implementation of a new health and wellness policy in Buffalo Public Schools. The center has provided strategic guidance to develop a committee leadership and governance structure for the new initiative and led a series of leadership and team development programs that have resulted in the successful implementation of health and wellness teams in all of the nearly 60 schools in the district.

Leadership Development

CLOE is contributing to leadership development at UB. A team from the center is working with the UB Office of the Vice Provost for Faculty Affairs to design and deliver a 10-month leadership program for UB department and unit chairs. CLOE also has conducted a 360-degree feedback and leadership development program for the leadership team of UB’s Office of Philanthropy and Alumni Engagement, which included implementing a 360-feedback process, leadership development plans and a series of leadership development workshops for using the 360-feedback for leadership development.
