Elizabeth Wolfe Morrison: ITT Harold Geneen Professor in Creative Management & the Vice Dean of Faculty, NYU Stern School of Business

My NativeAdVantage:

Bio:

Elizabeth Wolfe Morrison is the ITT Harold Geneen Professor in Creative Management at the Stern School of Business at New York University, and the Vice Dean of Faculty.

Professor Morrison's research explores different ways in which employees behave proactively at work, the conditions that motivate and enable such behavior, and how various types of proactive behavior both facilitate career success and improve organizational effectiveness. Much of her more recent work focuses on employee voice and silence, and in particular, the reasons why employees are often reluctant to speak up about problems and concerns, and how organizations can create climates more open to employee input. She has won several awards for her research, including the Cummings Scholar Award from the Organizational Behavior Division of the Academy of Management.

Professor Morrison has published her work in a wide range of journals, including Academy of Management Journal, Academy of Management Review, Journal of Applied Psychology, Journal of Organizational Behavior and Organizational Behavior and Human Decision Processes. She has served on the Executive Committee of the Organizational Behavior Division of the Academy of Management (2008-2013) and as Associate Editor for Academy of Management Journal (2007-2010). She teaches courses in Leadership, Collaboration and Negotiation, and Organizational Behavior.

What do you do best?

Keeping lots of different balls in the air and getting things done.  I am very task focused.  I have also been told that I am good at putting fairness ahead of expediency and at seeing multiple sides of an issue.   

What makes you the best?

Lots of hard work, perseverance, and being super organized.

How will you stay the best?

I don’t think about being the best.  I just focus on doing what I enjoy and on trying to make a difference.  I hope that I will never stop learning, trying new things, and taking risks.  

What are your aspirations?

Personal: To see more of the world, particularly places of natural beauty.  To find balance.

Business: To be more mindful in my work, to be a compassionate listener, and to be a force for positive change.

Most challenging moment?

My most challenging moments have been when I am faced with something frightening or painful and realize I have little control and must just have faith that I will come out the other side.

What fascinates you?

I am fascinated by the idiosyncrasies of human behavior—what makes us tick and how incredibly irrational we can be-- and by science.

Favorite Motto:

Don’t put off for tomorrow what you can get done today.

Pick your battles.

Favorite People:

My two sons.  They are amazing young men.

Favorite Places:

My house in the country, the mountains, Paris, Hawaii.

Favorite Products:

This is a tough one. I am not very into material things.  I guess I would have to say my Vienna coffee maker.

Current Passions:

Meditation, biking, and learning about the history and architecture of different part of NYC.
