Fun Fact: As a longtime runner, I escorted the Olympic Torch Runners across the Golden Gate Bridge!

If I wasn’t teaching, my dream job would be: Biologist or Veterinarian

Best part of the job: The opportunity to be around so many smart and energetic people – students, colleagues, managers. The vast array of activities such as studying fundamental social psychological phenomena like why people behave in accordance with social norms (e.g., organizational culture).Teaching and working with those really smart students and watching them use concepts they study in my class to successfully maneuver through organizational challenges. Serving on boards and making critical strategic decisions that, at times, significantly change the organization’s course, and advising organizations on how to develop strategically aligned cultures and leaders and ultimately, to perform better.

Worst part of the job: It is hard for me to say no to anything – I am humbled by the fascinating opportunities that come my way and pretty much everything sounds interesting to me.

To be a manager in the 21st century requires the ability to not only help drive profits and motivate others to meet business goals, it calls for a supernatural ability to manage different personality types.
