Leadership of teams and organizations has changed dramatically since 2020. Leadership in virtual team and organizational environments is a reality for many, yet we do not yet understand why some leaders, teams and organizations succeed in transitioning to virtual collaboration, team-building and goal achievement, while others do not.
We seek research proposals that address the virtual leadership question today, with an eye toward helping leaders, team members and organizations grow into great leadership and collaboration in the virtual environments of tomorrow.
We seek research proposals that advance our understanding of the meaning and practice of morally intelligent leadership in the context of artificial intelligence.

How does artificial intelligence affect defamation and accountability?
