An Overview of Our Research Areas
Selection & EMployment Interviews
Nearly every selection process involves a job interview. We examine the different factors that influence performance on the interview, and how different characteristics of interviewers may elicit different behaviours. We also specialize in different selection techniques such as personality testing.
Leadership is an increasingly important topic in the workplace. What are behaviours that great leaders engage in? Are there certain characteristics that allow leaders to flourish? We examine different styles of leadership, and how it can influence employee behaviours and workplace motivation.
Interpersonal Influence & Organizational Politics
The workplace facilitates interaction between individuals. How do individuals engage in negotiation and persuasion? What kinds of strategies do people engage in to convey their idea in a persuasive way? We examine different strategies and how they relate to workplace outcomes.
