Dan Cable named an upcoming business guru

LBS thought leader features on the Thinkers50 Radar list 


Dan Cable, Professor of Organisational Behaviour at London Business School, has been named one of the 30 management thinkers most likely to shape the future of how organisations are managed and led. 

He appears in the Thinkers50 Radar list, which recognises up-and-coming management gurus who are doing “exciting and important work” in the world of business. 

When announcing the list, the Thinkers50 judges said: “What is interesting is that ideas and thinkers are increasingly difficult to pigeonhole into traditional categories like leadership and strategy. These thinkers are truly independent-minded. They are driven by curiosity and innovation. In addition, their work shows broad global ambition. 

“When we started the Thinkers50 in 2001 the emphasis was on improving corporate performance and profitability. The next generation of thinkers wants to make the world a better place. We are optimistic that their ideas will indeed make a difference.”

Professor Cable’s areas of teaching, research and consulting include employee engagement, leading change and organisational culture. He also explores their effects on sustained competitive advantage, leadership development and mindset, and the link between brands and employee behaviours.

His latest book Alive at Work  will be published in March.
