Finding Complexity Leaders as Catalysts in Ethics-related Collaboration William R. Hanson, Ph.D. Complexity Leadership is an emerging theory that attempts to discover collaborative patterns of behavior leading to such outcomes as organizational learning, problem solving, creativity, and innovation. These outcomes rest on agentic catalysts, or tags, that seem to initiate and maintain collaborative behavior within the corresponding phenomena under study. While catalyst can be both human and nonhuman, this study focuses on faculty agents. Specifically, this research examines formal and informal leaders that catalyze collaboration within an ethics-related context at a small university. Data were collected with an online survey for all full-time institutional members holding faculty status; the response rate was 73%. This work applies Dynamic Network Analysis (DNA) to explore collaborative patterns in contexts of weekly interaction, ethics policy, and ethics-issue confidentiality within a complexity framework. Findings present a method to apply complexity leadership concepts in the quest to find both formal and informal leaders who act as catalyst in varying collaborative contexts. Resulting patterns of behavior are useful in generating future research questions and propositions.
