Institute for Cross Cultural Management (ICCM) Researcher
The nature of organizational work is changing. Rapidly developing technology is breaking down geographic boundaries and issues such as global economic crises, terrorism threats, and environmental disasters are making multinational and multicultural teams a necessary reality. While cultural diversity often encourages new perspectives and innovative solutions, differences in cultural viewpoint can also lead to misunderstandings and interaction problems. It is this real-world need that has inspired me to conduct research focused on understanding and improving performance in multicultural collaborative settings. My central research interests include the influence of cultural values and beliefs on behavior in the workplace, interpersonal trust development, violation, and repair, and team process and performance. Most specifically, my passion lies at the intersection of all three topics: the implications of cultural differences on trust dynamics in team settings. I also have an interest in cultural competence and the training of cultural competence.
