Research Interests

I have several specific interests that fall under two broad areas. I am interested in the study of leadership, particularly in the errors that those in executive and senior leadership positions make and the varied consequences of those errors. I am also interested in competitive organizational environments and their impact on leaders and leader behavior. Second, I am interested in selection and assessment issues in organizations, with the effective reduction and avoidance of adverse impact being my primary research area.
