Dr. Hanold is Associate Director and full time Instructor in the Sport Administration and Leadership masters program. Her research focuses on the physicality of leadership as related to embodiment, embodied biases, and empathy. She is particularly interested in the intersections of gender and sport leadership. Her approach to leadership development is innovative and focused on key skills and attitudes critical to leading in complex and rapidly changing contexts. She has published in several journals on these topics including: Advancing Women in Leadership and Global Sport Business Journal. She has also written book chapters in Sport Leadership for the 21st Century, The Embodiment of Leadership, and Advancing Women and Leadership: Moving the Needle through Applied Theory Building. Dr. Hanold also continues to do research on endurance sport cultures and has articles in the Sociology of Sport Journal, a recent chapter in a book on endurance running as well as been featured in short films, magazine articles and books on ultrarunning. She published the book, World Sports: A Reference Handbook in 2012, and is currently working on another book in the same series titled, Women in Sports. She has been an invited speaker on many topics including Generation iY, inclusive leadership, intersections between media, sport and leadership, sports psychology, and embodiment and leadership.
