I’m Mike Palanski - a social scientist who is dedicated to developing better leaders and organizations. I’m a pracademic - meaning I strive to combine the academic-oriented pursuits of teaching and research with the practice-oriented pursuits of writing, speaking, coaching, and consulting. My core philosophy of leadership development is this:
It’s not about being selfish, but rather about achieving leverage. It’s at the heart of all I do.
I am a Professor of Management in the Saunders College of Business at Rochester Institute of Technology in Rochester, NY. I teach classes in leadership, business ethics, and cross-cultural management. I am an active researcher in the area of leader development and business ethics. I’m known for my affability and dry sense of humor, both of which show up in my writing, speaking, coaching, and other collaboration.
Thank you for getting in touch!
One of our colleagues will get back to you shortly.
Have a great day!
