1. Gamache, Daniel L. After the announcement : how CEO motivational attributes shape their propensity to be influenced by stakeholder reactions to announcements of strategic actions.

Degree: 2015, Michigan State University

Thesis Ph. D. Michigan State University. Business Administration - Strategic Management 2015

Over the past three decades, building on upper echelons theory, research has continually demonstrated that CEOs play a central role in strategic decision making and that differences amongst CEOs can help to explain firm strategic actions. Independently, other research has explored how CEOs attend to, and learn from, feedback provided by external stakeholders following announcements of strategic actions. In this dissertation I integrate these two research streams by exploring how CEO psychological characteristics shape the propensity for CEOs to be influenced by stakeholder reactions. I develop and test a theory arguing that some CEO attributes will shape the degree that CEOs are influenced by positive or negative stakeholder reactions to the announcement of a strategic action, while other CEO characteristics will influence the degree that CEOs are influenced by stakeholder reactions in general. More specifically, I focus on two proximal motivational constructs that have been shown to have strong and meaningful impact on behavior: CEO regulatory focus and CEO temporal focus. I develop predictions about how these important attributes influence how CEOs attend to and learn from the reactions by the media and stock market following announcements of large acquisitions.

2. Matta, Fadel Khalil. The gift and the curse of LMX social comparisons : when they help and when they hurt.

Degree: 2016, Michigan State University

Thesis Ph. D. Michigan State University. Business Administration 2016

Although most prior LMX research has focused solely on the influence of LMX relationships on employees and supervisors within the leader-member dyad, it is important to consider how this dyadic phenomenon influences the broader network of dyadic coworker thoughts, emotions, and behaviors. In this dissertation, I draw on social comparison theory to suggest that LMX relationships have important implications for not only how employees view themselves and their leaders but also how they view, feel toward, and ultimately behave with their coworkers. This dissertation posits that, regardless of whether a particular employee has a relatively high LMX relationship or a relatively low LMX relationship with their supervisor, LMX social comparisons can produce beneficial and detrimental effects for dyadic coworker interactions depending upon whether an employee experiences self-other overlap with that referent coworker. To test my social comparison theory arguments, my dissertation utilizes dyadic social network data from three large coworker workgroups to demonstrate how these LMX social comparison processes influence the social comparison emotions that employees feel toward their referent coworkers and how these social comparison emotions influence interpersonal discretionary behaviors amongst coworkers. Interestingly, the results of my dissertation provide novel examples in which relatively lower LMX quality (under certain conditions) had beneficial workplace outcomes (in terms of inspiration and OCBI), challenging the implicit assumption in the literature that higher LMX quality always results in superior outcomes.

3. Howe, Michael. Fool me once, shame on you; fool me twice, shame on me : an investigation of individual differences, goals, and adaptive performance in a multiple change context.

Degree: 2014, Michigan State University

Thesis Ph. D. Michigan State University. Business Administration - Organization Behavior - Human Resource Management - Doctor of Philosophy 2014.

The rapid rate of technological innovation taking place in an increasingly interconnected global business environment has created workplaces rife with change, both in terms of how work is performed inside organizations as well as in the environment within which the organization operates (Burke, Pierce, & Salas, 2006; Pulakos, Arad, Donovan, & Plamondon, 2000). As a result, the traditional means of defining and evaluating employee performance may no longer be valid because new behaviors (e.g. constant learning) and abilities (e.g. high-order thinking) are increasingly important (Cascio, 1995). This has led to the emergence of a new performance domain, adaptive performance, related to an individual's ability to effectively respond to changes in the workplace. Despite the importance of adaptive performance for modern organizations, relatively little is known about individual and contextual antecedents of adaptive performance. This study aims to begin addressing this deficiency by relying on control theory to further our knowledge of the relationships between initial and subsequent adaptive performance with historically important predictors of overall performance, including intelligence as well as performance relevant Big-5 personality traits. In addition, these relationships are evaluated in the presence of difficult, specific performance goals that are commonly employed by organizations. Novel software was developed to adapt the stock pricing exercise to the task change paradigm in order to test these hypotheses using a sample of 261 student participants.
