Leader Rapport Management & Team Member Engagement

Professor Kim Sydow Campbell has conducted a range of research studies over the years on Leader Rapport Management. In her recently published co-authored study, she explores its impact on social loafing in student teams (i.e. not participating actively) and also examines the potential influence of some intermediary factors.

Information Transparency and Trust in Teams

The quality of information sharing in organisations is widely seen as having a major impact on employee engagement, but what are the critical elements that influence people’s perception of it? A recent study by Schnackenberg and colleagues[1] researched this and found some interesting additional links with trustworthiness. I summarise their findings here, adding some thoughts on their implications for managing international/intercultural teamwork.
