Two proposals accepted for the 17th Annual Global Conference for the International Leadership Association in Barcelona, Spain

“Historically the ILA receives hundreds of proposals so I am deeply honored to be presenting along with those doing cutting-edge research.”

The International Leadership Association (ILA) has accepted two proposals from Travis Berger, an assistant professor in the business department at Alvernia University and coordinator of the Masters in Organizational Leadership (MOL) program, for their conference October 14 -17, 2015.

Professor Berger is the co-author of these proposals with Dr. John Anderson, Professor of Sociology and the program coordinator for the Administration and Leadership Studies Doctoral Program at Indiana University of Pennsylvania.

The titles of the two presentations are; "Strategy's Contribution to the Leadership/Strategy (L/S) Conceptual Framework: Focus, Context, and Criteria" and "Presenting a Taxonomy of Leadership: The Foundation of the Leadership/Strategy (L/S) Conceptual Framework.”

Berger will present both papers at the ILA’s conference in Barcelona, since Dr. Anderson is unable to attend the conference.

The accepted presentations went through a rigorous peer-review process. These sessions, along with keynote presentations, round table discussions and pre-conference workshops are designed to let professionals share ideas, research and best practices on leadership.

This is the second year in a row that Professor Berger was accepted to present at this global conference.

Professor Berger explains that, “Historically the ILA receives hundreds of proposals so I am deeply honored to be presenting along with those doing cutting-edge research.”

In addition to his responsibilities coordinating Alvernia’s MOL program, Professor Berger teaches Alvernia’s MBA capstone course, MBA 680: Executive Leadership, and the MBA 675: Strategic Formulation & Implementation.
