Christopher G Myers, PhD

Associate Professor of Management & Organization and (jointly) of Medicine and Public Health
Faculty Director,
Center for Innovative Leadership
Johns Hopkins Carey Business School 
Welcome! I am an Associate Professor of Management & Organization at the Johns Hopkins University Carey Business School (with Joint Faculty Appointments in the School of Medicine and Bloomberg School of Public Health), where my research and writing explore the ways people learn and lead at work, with a particular emphasis on how people learn vicariously and share knowledge in health care organizations.

My teaching and speaking focus broadly on topics of leadership and organizational behavior, and at the Carey Business School I am the Faculty Director of the Center for Innovative Leadership, the school’s hub for cutting-edge research, developmental learning experiences, and practical business engagement focused on leading modern organizations. I also currently serve as an Associate Editor of Academy of Management Discoveries.
