Areas of Expertise
I've been a member of the Psychology Department since 1974, and in addition to teaching and conducting research, I do applied work in the area of industrial-organizational psychology.
Currently, my professional interest focuses on the high performance organization model, and the application of the strategies of team-based "work redesign" and behavior-based safety in a variety of work settings.

Good meetings (and bad meetings) have implications for overall job satisfaction, and can impact employee attitudes about the organization. Research shows that the most conscientious, hardworking employees – the ones that likely are the backbone of the company and the ones employers most want to retain – are the ones who are most negatively affected by bad meetings.
