Reputation management or branding is of increasing importance for any public organization. This presentation will, based on a new book, discuss perspectives on reputation management generally and related leadership challenges more specifically, types of symbols used and what may explain variations between countries and sectors. Empirically, the presentation will mainly focus on reputation management at Chinese, American and Nordic universities. The wider implications of the study for leadership in reputation management more generally in the public sector will also be discussed.
