Personal profile

Research

In my research, I focus on organizational processes at the micro- and meso-levels of analysis. Specifically, my research focuses on the dilemmas between individual and collective interests. For organizations and the individuals and groups that operate within them, finding a balance between own interests, ideas and opinions and those of the larger collective is essential for achieving effective outcomes. I examine the ways in which individuals and groups deal with the challenges and opportunities this creates. As such, my studies focus on the motivational and contextual factors that drive behavior in settings such as teamwork, negotiation and interpersonal conflict. This research area is especially relevant in light of the current societal transitions that relate to the restructuring of organizations involving increased participation in decision making (for example in health care, crisis management, and labor participation). Whether public organizations and private organizations with a public task are able to effectively deliver public value depends for an important part on how micro (individual) and meso (team) -level processes take form. Connecting "the macro" and "the micro" therefore offers solutions to current societal challenges. Specific areas of study are:

o Team functioning and performance

o Negotiation and post-negotiation processes and outcomes

o Conflict management

o Workplace coaching

o The social functions of gossip in teams

In my research, I employ various quantitative and qualitative research methods (e.g. experiments, vignette studies, surveys, interviews).
