Featured Poster: Power and Status in Groups (S. Rains Wallace Dissertation Award)

Saturday, April 29, 2017
3:00pm – 3:50pm
Atlantic BC


Jamie Perry, Cornell University

Research on power and status illustrates the importance of ranking for individuals, teams, and organizations. The purpose of this presentation is to investigate whether power and status provide similar or distinct effects on team outcomes, such as psychological safety, collective efficacy, and performance. Given that power and status have been shown to be causally related and mutually reinforcing, I also consider the joint effects of power and status differences on team processes and effectiveness outcomes. The paper provides practical advice for managers on ways to improve team effectiveness through team design and reward structure.
