Winston Center Research

In promoting faculty research and scholarship and encouraging curricular innovation, the Winston Center enriches the life of students and practitioners through fostering the growth of knowledge in the area of leadership and ethics.




A research study funded by the WCLE and conducted by a team of scholars with ties to BC will soon be published in the Journal of Applied Behavioral Science. Entitled “A way forward: Cascading ethical and change leadership, values enactment, and group-level effects on commitment in corruption recovery,” it was co-authored by BC alum Rick Cotton, BC Professor and Robert A. and Evelyn J. Ferris Chair Jean Bartunek, and retired BC Professor Bill Stevenson. The co-authors conducted a survey of over 2,000 employees at an insurance company and found that new leadership made a difference in the recovery of the firm following corruption. They report that organization members’ perceptions of their leaders’ ethical posture was significantly related to perceptions of progress on enacting important values and on their commitment to the organization.

BC is hosting the 13th Boston Field Research Conference with the theme “Ethical Challenges in Fieldwork: Quandaries and Quagmires.” The organizing committee, Management & Organization Professors Jean Bartunek, Mary Ann Glynn, Spencer Harrison, and Mike Pratt, is planning a program of panel discussions and workshops focusing on ethical issues in conducting fieldwork for the approximately 60 scholars in attendance.
