Dr Tiffany Keller Hansbrough (Fairleigh Dickinson University): A...

Despite widespread concerns about the use of retrospective accounts of leader behavior and response tendencies associated with raters who tend to rely on semantic memory, little attention has been devoted to developing methods that move measurement processes beyond those based on semantic memory to those based on episodic memory.

Dr Kristin Knipfer (University of Munich): Knowledge Hiding in...

Dr Hong Deng (University of Birmingham): Long May Our Group Thrive:...

29
Mar

Professor Jeroen Stouten (University of Leuven, Belgium):...

Follett (1996, p. 170) argued that “either (you are) a leader or nothing of much importance.” This quote illustrates the notion that leadership has received a disproportional share of the attention from the ancient world to modern organizations.

Abstract: Workplace bullying is a persistent issue in the NHS (Quine, 1999; Hoel & Cooper, 2000; Carter et al, 2013), with significant negative implications for individuals, teams and organisations (Salin, 2009; Illing et al, 2013).
