My research interest focuses on how to improve human performance and organization performance using emotional intelligence. Within this framework, I examine how emotional intelligence can be applied to leadership development, organization development, talent development and management initiatives. I have also used class discussions in my teaching and my service to professional associations as opportunities to expand my research. For example, I have contributed publications in the areas of learning and development, talent development, and virtual/ eLearning.
