Developing Leaders Quarterly

A Pocket-Sized Periodical on Leadership and Organization

Founded in 2013, Developing Leaders Quarterly is the leading independent magazine focusing on leadership and organization.

It is a joint venture publication from Ideas for Leaders and the Center for the Future of Organization.

Developing Leaders is more than just a quarterly magazine – it is also a bridge to connect thought and practice leaders. We are proud that we are independent and have no vested interests or in-house consultancy to promote or steer our content – we are simply led by our curiosity into the best, most interesting emerging stories and insights around leadership and organizations.

While our roots are in amplifying the thinking and research of leading faculty at the world’s foremost business schools, we are also enthusiastic about providing a publishing opportunity for practitioners and emerging thought leaders to share their insights and experiences with a wider audience.

In addition to the quarterly magazine editions that we publish we also foster significant audience engagement through our online events. Check those out here 

In our new format we will have a lead topic each quarter that we explore from three perspectives: academia, business and consulting. Additional content will be available online and in our occasional newsletter, that will draw on discussion from our online roundtables with thought-leaders.


Ideas for Leaders is an online publishing and content platform, created by Roddy Millar in 2013. It has established strategic partnerships with 50+ top tier business schools around the globe, and summarizes new academic research into short, accessible pieces for managers, executives and leaders at all levels.

Ideas for Leaders’ vast research library is freely accessible and provides in-depth knowledge of and access to practice-oriented thought leaders.

Ideas for Leaders also operates a publishing imprint and creates a select number of online courses. We also provide 25 short online programs, based on our research Ideas, in exclusive partnership with OpenSesame.


The Center for the Future of Organization is a think tank at the Drucker School of Management, Claremont Graduate University. Under the directorship of its founder, Dr Roland Deiser, the center works closely with executives at over 50 global corporations. 

The Center serves as a premier global hub for applied research and practical discourse on new paradigms of Leadership and Organization with special regards to the role of digital technologies as drivers of competitive advantage.

We achieve this through customized research projects and think tanks, executive education and advisory, and by a global virtual platform for knowledge development and exchange.

A Global Perspective

Developing Leaders Quarterly brings insights and perspectives from around the globe. While our starting point is a European one, we are keen to promote and amplify case studies, research and initiatives from across the world. Understanding what has worked and not worked in different locations, cultures and sectors is the basis for better practice in the future – and we leverage our network to ensure we bring a diverse and rich set of perspectives and experiences to catalyse thinking and discussion.
