Mayowa Babalola is a Nigerian-born Leadership scholar with a PhD in Organizational Psychology from the University of Leuven, Belgium. His research focuses primarily on leadership, including ethical, servant, abusive, and family-supportive leadership. Mayowa investigates how effective leaders emerge, the contexts hindering or facilitating their emergence, and how they can, in turn, shape desirable attitudes and behaviours during organizational change, workplace conflict, and beyond. In his second research stream, he applies a behavioural science lens to study how leadership can better foster health and safety outcomes in high-risk sectors, such as healthcare, manufacturing, and aviation. Recent publications include articles in the Journal of Management and Journal of Business Ethics.
