Announcement of New SIOP Fellows

Ann Howard
Development Dimensions International

We are delighted to announce that 13 SIOP members were honored at the Atlanta conference with the distinction of Fellow. 

FYI: The 2010 Fellow nominations process goes online on July 1.  Visit the SIOP Web site for the process.

Here are the new Fellows:

David P. Baker
Director, Health Services Research Institute, Carilion Clinic; Principal Research Scientist, American Institutes for Research
Dr. Baker has developed and applied his expertise in teams, teamwork, training, and team performance measurement to the great benefit of those in high-risk work settings and the public they serve. He has contributed significantly to the aviation industry but is best known for his work with healthcare teams and their impact on patient safety. He led the team that developed evidence-based training methods (TeamSTEPPS) that notably improved the performance of healthcare work teams. This project earned him and his team SIOP’s 2007 M. Scott Myers Award for Applied Research in the Workplace. This method is now becoming the national standard for healthcare training and is spreading internationally. He has been principal investigator on more than 20 funded research projects and has published his work in a wide range of journals.

Cristina G. Banks
President and Founder, Lamorinda Consulting LLC
A practitioner with academic and service contributions spanning more than 30 years, Dr. Banks is best known for her work addressing claims in more than 70 wage and hour class-action lawsuits. Through innovations in job analysis methodology, she has transformed an ambiguous field of practice into one based on credible data and systematic methods of analysis. She is a leading expert on how plaintiffs and defendants can present scientifically defensible analyses to address wage and hour contentions, using her techniques to instruct lawyers, judges, and participants. Her expertise has helped organizations to quickly settle legal challenges and change their practices to conform to labor law. Her efforts earned an APA Presidential Citation for Innovative Practice award in 2009. She has also founded two successful consulting organizations and two nonprofit organizations.

Arthur G. Bedeian
Boyd Professor, Louisiana State University and A&M College
Dr. Bedeian has advanced I-O research and theory in four areas: role theory, work–family conflict, multilevel analysis, and research methodology.  He has been a prolific researcher, evidenced by 144 publications in refereed journals and more than 1,600 citations in ISI Web of Science. He was often one of the first to call out the importance of a topic (for example, role conflict, structural equation modeling) before it evolved into mainstream research. He is a past president of the Academy of Management where he has been a Fellow for 30 years and a recipient of a Lifetime Achievement Award. He has been editor of the Journal of Management and served on the editorial boards of 16 journals, including the Journal of Applied Psychology, Organizational Research Methods, and Academy of Management Review.

Jason A. Colquitt
McClatchy Professor of Management, Warrington College of Business Administration, University of Florida
With a 10-year post-PhD career that includes 26 top-tier articles, 3 books, 11 chapters, and more than 1,800 citations in Web of Science, Dr. Colquitt is a model of career achievement. He was the recipient of SIOP’s Distinguished Early Career Contributions Award in 2005 and the Cummings Scholar Award for early to midcareer achievement from the Academy of Management in 2006. He is the editor elect of Academy of Management Journal. His research has tackled difficult issues at the heart of I-O psychology. He has made considerable contributions to the literatures of organizational justice, team effectiveness, and personality influences on task and learning performance. An important advance was his integration of organizational justice and team effectiveness. His scale for measuring organizational justice has become the de facto standard used in about a dozen countries.

Sandra O. Davis
Founder and CEO, MDA Leadership Consulting
Dr. Davis cofounded her leadership consulting firm 28 years ago, and she is actively involved in individual assessment, executive coaching, and CEO/board succession. She consults regularly with CEOs and boards of directors of Fortune 500 companies, showing how psychological assessment can be used as a business strategy for improving individual, team, and organizational effectiveness. Her writing, including two chapters in SIOP’s Professional Practice Series, conference seminars, and presentations, attests to her impact in the field. A recent article in SIOP’s journal, on integrating coaching principles with clinical research on the therapist–client relationship, illustrates the unique perspective she brings to coaching. She is also a practicing coach: Approximately 100 psychologists have benefited from their experiences in her firm as consultants and interns, and she has helped forge a path for women practitioners in I-O psychology.

Jeffery A. LePine
Darden Restaurants Professor of Management, Department of Management, Warrington College of Business Administration, University of Florida
Dr. LePine is an early career achiever with only 11 years of post-PhD experience. He was the recipient of both SIOP’s Distinguished Early Career Contributions Award in 2004 and the Academy of Management’s Cummings Scholar Award for Early-Mid Career Research Achievements in Organizational Behavior in 2005. He has made considerable contributions with his research on teams and moderators of their effectiveness. The good and bad effects of stress, multidimensional models of job performance, and the role of organizational citizenship are also areas of notable research. The common thread in his work is around individual and team effectiveness in contexts where adaptation is required. His scholarship has been described as “highly rigorous, as well as focused and programmatic” and “remarkable in terms of quantity, quality, scope, and range of skills.”

Karen S. Lyness
Professor, Department of Psychology, Baruch College, The City University of New York
Dr. Lyness has had two complementary careers as an I-O psychologist: first as a practitioner in three different corporations and currently in academia. Her focus in practice was on what makes managers successful and how their success might be moderated by organizational and national contexts. As a scholar, she has specialized in women in executive and managerial roles and the work–life interface of managers. Much of her research has involved pursuing theory-driven questions by creative use of very large samples of archival data. Her findings on issues such as gender differences in career barriers have been significant to society as well as psychology. In 2003, she received the Sage Lifetime Achievement Award from the Gender and Diversity in Organizations division of the Academy of Management.

Steven G. Rogelberg
Director and Professor, Organizational Science; Professor of Management; Professor of Psychology, University of North Carolina
Dr. Rogelberg is recognized for his excellent scholarly work, which includes 60 publications over a 15-year career as well as five books. Particularly notable is the novel and unique content of his high-quality research. For example, he has studied the impact of meetings on employee job satisfaction, health, and well-being. He has investigated why people do or do not respond to surveys. And his interest in studying the well- being of people who do “dirty work” led him to intensive research on those who perform euthanasia in animal shelters. His findings have appeared frequently in textbooks as well as the national media, including radio, television, newspapers, and magazines like National Geographic. Dr. Rogelberg’s considerable and impactful service to SIOP has also been acknowledged through the 2009 Distinguished Service Contributions Award.

William A. Schiemann
Founder and CEO, Metrus Group
Dr. Schiemann, an S. Rains Wallace Dissertation Award winner for his early work in communications and networking, is probably best known for his employee survey work, spanning 30 years.  He was an early proponent of evidence-based management, demonstrating the value of strategic survey information in decision making. After founding Metrus Group in 1988, he introduced the concept of “measurement–management organization,” the first publications on strategy mapping and the importance of people as key stakeholders in balanced scorecard theory and application.   In the last decade, he has introduced the concept of People Equity as a way to assess the value—alignment, capabilities, and engagement—of talent investments.   He is currently chair of the SHRM Foundation Board of Directors. His work includes 5 books, 34 publications, and 7 book chapters, including three in SIOP’s Professional Practice Series.

Mark J. Schmit
Western Regional Vice President, Applied Psychological Techniques, Inc.
Dr. Schmit has focused much of his career on improving the quality of HR tools and systems used by other practitioners as well as developing tools and systems for numerous Fortune 500 and public-sector organizations. He led the development of a global measure of personality (Global Personality Inventory) with measurement equivalence across cultures, and his test development strategy is considered a best-practice model. Another breakthrough was his idea to include work context qualifiers in personality measurement, thereby increasing criterion-related validity. He also helped develop a job analysis instrument that identifies the personality requirements of a particular job, and he identified the “good employee” component revealed by Big Five personality instruments. His scholarly publications include 24 refereed publications and 5 book chapters. He has served on several SIOP committees, including chair of Professional Practice.

Daan van Knippenberg
Professor of Organizational Behavior, Rotterdam School of Management, Erasmus University
Dr. van Knippenberg is internationally recognized for his application of experimental social psychology to I-O psychology. His development of the social identity analysis of leadership, including the Social Identity Model of Organizational Leadership (SIMOL), which has been cited extensively, has contributed important ideas to the field of leadership. His research has also emphasized the importance of studying the interactive influences of the social categorization and decision-making processes underlying the effects of diversity on work group performance. He has published more than 70 refereed articles, and during the past 10 years his work has attracted more than $2 million in competitive research funding. He is the founding editor of a new journal, Organizational Psychology Review. He was instrumental in forging the alliance between SIOP and the European Association of Work and Organizational Psychology (EAWOP).

Larry J. Williams
Professor of Management/CARMA Director, Department of Management and Information Systems, School of Business Administration, Wayne State University
Dr. Williams is a highly cited research methodologist, especially known for structural equation modeling. His publications have received over 3,000 citations, and two of his papers are in the top six most cited articles in the 30-year history of the Journal of Management. He was one of the first researchers to bring structural equation techniques to the I-O field and has continued that work, addressing issues like method variance, model fit, and how SEM can better test theories of employee work adjustment and performance. He was the founding editor (1997–2004) of Organizational Research Methods and also founded the Center for Advancement of Research Methods and Analysis (CARMA) while at Virginia Commonwealth University. He received the 2005 Distinguished Career Award from the Academy of Management Research Methods Division.

Stephen J. Zaccaro
Professor, Department of Psychology, George Mason University
Dr. Zaccaro is well known for his research on leadership, team dynamics, and the leader–team interface. He has emphasized leader characteristics that promote effectiveness across multiple situations. He has also examined executive leadership and leadership development and has authored or edited six scholarly books and has another one pending.  He has published 48 articles, 32 book chapters, and 29 technical reports. A recent analysis of the management literature, which includes all the top I-O journals, ranked him the seventh most cited author during 2000–2004. Working closely with the Army Research Institute and the Air Force Office for Sponsored Research, he has received more than $1.3 million in funding. He has supervised more than 30 dissertations and is currently the associate editor of Journal of Business and Psychology and Military Psychology.
