I am very happy to present this week's newsletter – chock-a-block with excellent content!
Our first story underscores the idea that leadership is a responsibility and leader transgression does have a notable impact on followers. Our second story describes the research by DISC doctoral student Santiago Forero, who implicates emotion in supply chain decision-making.
Our thought leaders are also actively contributing to the current and challenging situation we find ourselves in. Airing on Bauer Business Focus this week is Prof. Partha Krishnamurthy discussing the impact of Covid19 on consumer behavior. Another article hot off the presses, is a thought-provoking piece co-authored by Prof. Derek Avery who outlines strategies to help leaders lead change to confront racial bias and inequality within their organizations.
Two of our marketing professors have received recognition for their research excellence. Our final story showcases Mike Ahearne's achievements that led him to win the 2020 American Marketing Association Sales SIG Excellence in Research Award and Sesh Tirunillai's paper that was a finalist for the 2020 ISMS (INFORMS Society for Marketing Science) Long-Term Impact Award. Congrats Mike and Sesh!
