Related Research Interests
We know from a large body of literature across multiple disciplines that it is good (for both individuals and organizations) to feel valued, accepted, and supported by others. One area of my research examines the sources of these perceptions. In particular, recent projects investigate the interactional and communicative basis of these relationships, as well as how positive (as well as negative) relationships can be formed, manifested, and revitalized in employees’ times of need.
