Junfeng Wu, a PhD student from the UIC Business Organizational Behavior/Human Resources program, has been selected as a 2016 Greenleaf Scholar by the Robert K. Greenleaf Center for Servant Leadership. Wu will receive financial support from the Greenleaf Center, as well as inclusion in the Center’s Annual International Conference and the National Forum.
Wu, who came to UIC from Renmin University in Beijing, approaches leadership research through the dynamics of shared perspectives among members of a group. His work explores the impact of servant leadership on group creativity and the trade-offs between group coordination and perspectival convergence among individuals.
Wu will join UIC Business alumnus Jeremy Meuser, PhD ’16, who was also selected as a 2016 Greenleaf Scholar. Meuser, whose background includes degrees in engineering and philosophy, will continue his research on differential leader treatment and employee identification.
