overworked and under-familied to advance "overworked & under-familied"

Jamie Gloor

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 several renowned 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…

Now I’m looking forward to seeing some of these scholars 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!

She travelled 13,000KM, so I travelled 300.

Prof. Jenny Hoobler, renowned researcher of gender, leadership, and work-family intersections, recently travelled 13,000KM from Pretoria, South Africa to visit Prof. Brooke Gazdag at LMU in Munich. As a long-time admirer of Jenny’s work as well as a coauthor and friend of Brooke’s, I also made the 300KM trip to discuss ideas and experiences (over beers–it was in Munich, after all), and enjoy her presentation of her recent Journal of Management paper for the Institute for Leadership and Organization.

Per usual, it was an absolute delight to see everyone (including catching up with many members of my awesome former TUM team), and I left with more energy, enthusiasm, and insights for my research and its implications. Dankie/danke, Jenny and Brooke, and the whole LMU crew!

On September 21, I presented “Laugh it up? Interpersonal and career effects of humor” in the selective Academy of Management Journal Paper & Idea Development Workshop at ESSEC Business School in Paris La Défense.

AMJ editor-in-chief Jason Shaw, deputy editor Marc Gruber (also from Switzerland!), and 6 other Associate Editors (e.g., Brian L. Connelly, Pursey Heugens, Sucheta Nadkarni, Anthony J. Nyberg, Zeki Simsek, and Balagopal (Bala) Vissa) convened from across the world to provide feedback on 24 international scholars' research.

It was an intense but inspiring and fun experience. Now to get to work incorporating feedback on my (eventual) AMJ submission…

"Improving Lives" @AOM 2018 in Chicago

Jamie Gloor

78th Annual Meeting of the Academy of Management

The 5-day Academy of Management (AOM) Conference just concluded in Chicago, USA. With more than 11,000 experts from around the world, I joined 6 of my Munich team members and my UZH team member to actively engage in scholarly conversations about ways that leaders and organizations can improve employee well-being as well as our society as a whole.

Together with Claudia Peus (TUM), I organized a symposium on early career (female) leaders and fit, drawing from leading international scholars from China, Colombia, Germany, Ireland, Israel, and the USA. Together with Xinxin Li and Sandy Lim (NUS), I presented a new experimental study on gender, parenthood, and selective incivility at work. Finally, through the OB early career faculty workshop, the leadership research incubator and the GDO early career faculty paper workshop, I received invaluable advice on other papers, including my new humor project with Agnes Baeker (UZH).

It was fantastic to reconnect with colleagues and coauthors, make new connections over shared curiosities, start some new projects, and see a little bit of Chicago. However, 5 days of packed schedules with 11,000+ conference-goers and a 7-hour time change is enough to make even this extreme extrovert a bit tired...

Annual Meeting of the Academy of Management

Miranda Peterson

I attended the the 75th Annual Meeting of the Academy of Management held August 7-11, 2015 in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.

The program theme was Opening Governance. The 2015 theme invites members to consider opportunities to improve the effectiveness and creativity of organizations by restructuring systems at the highest organizational levels, and to try to answer the many questions organizational governance faces in today's digital and informational climate.

Together with colleagues from Germany (Aline Hernandez Bark, Goethe), Switzerland (Levke Henningsen, UZH psychology), and the United States (Avina Gupta, NYU), we also presented a symposium on gender and leadership with our stellar discussant from Yale Business School, Professor Victoria Brescoll (see below). I also presented a paper coauthored with Tyler Okimoto, Anja Feierabend, and Bruno Staffelbach on Young women are risky business? The “Maybe Baby” effect in employment decisions.

Allergies, extra weight tied to bullying

Miranda Peterson

In another study, researchers from Yale University in New Haven, Connecticut, found that almost two-thirds of 361 teens enrolled in weight-loss camps had been bullied due to their size.

That likelihood increased with weight, so that the heaviest kids had almost a 100 percent chance of being bullied, Rebecca Puhl and her colleagues found. Verbal teasing was the most common form of bullying, but more than half of bullied kids reported getting taunted online or through texts and emails as well.

Don’t Call My Kid Fat! Parents Want Doctors to Talk About ‘Unhealthy Weight’

Miranda Peterson

Rudd Center research published in article on Time Magazine website. 

With 2 million U.S. children classified as extremely obese, it’s impossible to ignore kids’ growing girth. But researchers at the Rudd Center for Food Policy and Obesity at Yale University are suggesting that there are better, more sensitive ways to discuss the issue with parents and children.

“Many people find the term ‘fat’ to be pejorative and judgmental,” says Rebecca Puhl, the study’s lead author and Rudd’s director of research. “A lot of the time, providers have positive intentions, but the language they use can be seen as blaming, accusatory and not helpful.”
