Karl Moore is an Associate Professor at McGill University, Montreal, Quebec, Canada. He holds a joint appointment in the Department of Strategy and Organization at the Desautels Faculty of Management and the Department of Neurology and Neurosurgery at McGill's Faculty of Medicine, however, he is not a medical professional, he does leadership teaching and coaching.[1] He is also the Co-Director of the Advanced Leadership Program, a program he runs jointly with Henry Mintzberg.[citation needed] Moore was previously on the faculty of Templeton College at Oxford University for five years, where he remains an Associate Fellow.[2] Before joining academia, he worked 12 years in sales and marketing management positions with IBM, Bull and Hitachi.[citation needed]

In 2005, Business Strategy Review, published by the London Business School, identified Moore among a group of world's greatest business thinkers.[3] A 2011 article in The Globe and Mail listed him as one of the four top business professors in Canada.[4]

Moore's work has been published in academic journals including SMJ, JIBS, AMP, MIR, JABS and JPIM.[citation needed] He conducts a weekly video column on leadership called "Talking Management",[5] for The Globe and Mail. Some of his interviews have been picked up for syndication by The New York Times syndication service.[6] In April 2009, Moore and historian David Lewis’ book, The Origins of Globalization was published by Routledge. It discusses "known-world" globalization in the Roman Empire.[6] It was reviewed by The Globe and Mail columnist Neil Reynolds.[7][8] Macleans.ca published an interview with Moore about the book.[9] An earlier book, Birth of the Multinational was received positively by International Business reviewers[10] but received a more mixed review from the late Phoneian historian Hans Georg Niemeyer.[11]

Moore's current[when?] research projects are on introverted/ambiverted/extroverted leaders in the C-Suite. He has written a number of articles on the idea in Changeboard, the Globe and Mail.[12] In March 2011 he started a weekly column for Forbes.com, Rethinking Leadership.

In May 2012, Moore received the 2012 Faculty Award for Excellence in Alumni Activities.[13] In August 2017, he was nominated for one of Thinkers50's Distinguished Achievement Awards.[14]
