Today a Doctor in Management Science, Benjamin was accompanied by Turningpoint for 7 years (2012-2019) as part of his research on leader engagement. His research demonstrated that the habit of giving, in whatever form, plays a central part in leadership development, both at the level of the leader and his team, as well as the entire organization.

Drawing upon Turningpoint research into leadership transitions started in 1999, and in collaboration with Ashridge University and HEC Paris, Bridget Farrands and Richard Elsner identified polarizing situations – leadership tensions – that can place a new leader in a highly tenuous situation of which he is not always conscious. The research resulted in a book “Leadership Transitions – How business leaders take charge in new roles” (Kogan Page, 2012). The book is based on 4 stories of relative successes and failures.
