My current research activities and expertise include studies investigating how to lead diverse teams, leadership transitions in organisations, how CEO personality affects top management team interaction and firm performance, as well as investigating how trust forms in work teams, and the effects of conflict in groups

The research I am best known for includes:

  • The crucial role trust plays in getting the benefits of task conflict without also increasing the damage of relationship conflict in top management teams
  • Bringing together diverse perspectives to improve collaboration and team performance
  • A model for conflict management in teams
  • The effects of CEO and team leader personality on performance
