HELPING AND VOICE BEHAVIOR
Much of my research focuses on factors that increase the level of employee initiative and proactive behavior in organizations. This includes volunteering to others with the work (HELPING BEHAVIOR) and speaking up to express constructive ideas for changes in organizational procedures and policies (VOICE BEHAVIOR).
More recently, I have been involved in a large-scale Cultural Intelligence research program.
"Cultural Intelligence is the capability to function effectively in situations characterized by cultural diversity."
To date, this research team has:
- developed a theoretically-based, multi-dimensional conceptualization of Cultural Intelligence
- developed and validated a 20-item measure of Cultural Intelligence (short and practical)
- developed a multi-faceted training program to enhance self-awareness of personal Cultural Intelligence
- developed a multi-faceted training program to enhance awareness of the Cultural Intelligence of others
- developed personalized feedback reports that allow individuals to compare their own views of their Cultural Intelligence with how others see them
Overall, my research has been published in a variety of journals including Academy of Management Journal, Academy of Management Review, British Journal of Social Psychology, Journal of Applied Psychology, Research in Organizational Behavior, Journal of Occupational and Organizational Psychology, Journal of Organizational Behavior and Human Decision Processes, and Journal of Organizational Behavior.
