It seems ironic that I was just working long hours away from my family to finish up a paper titled, “Overworked and under-familied?”
But other than the computer system failure in Dusseldorf airport on my way over, my recent 25-hour visit with my coauthor, Professor Susanne Braun, at Durham University Business School was a very efficient, productive, and fun time! Durham has some great leadership scholars such as Bob Lord and Olga Epitropaki, as well as several super OCB and proactivity folks–just what our paper needed! The town itself is also an idyllic English vision–complete with a castle, cathedral, and several pubs where you can accidentally stumble upon quiz night (like we did!)
Now I’m looking forward to seeing some of these guys again in Korfu for our upcoming Interdisciplinary Perspectives on Leadership Symposium (where I met many of them last year), as well as finishing up and submitting this paper! Thanks again, Susanne and Durham Business School!
