Event description

Description

A startup’s chances of success depend critically on the people who make up the founding team. Some conflict is inevitable, but different outlooks and temperaments among founders can ultimately make a company stronger or destroy it. What should you think about when looking for co-founders? Join us to learn from Lindred Greer, associate professor of organizational behavior at the Stanford Graduate School of Business. Professor Greer’s work focuses on the impact of team composition on intragroup conflict and team performance. She has a particular interest in how early-stage startup teams are composed in terms of power, status, and leadership structures, and when and why these structures may fuel power struggles and conflicts.

About the Speaker

Lindred Greer

Lindred L. Greer is an Associate Professor of Organizational Behavior and she teaches the core Groups and Teams course in the MBA program. Professor Greer’s work focuses on the impact of team composition on intragroup conflict and team performance. She has a particular interest in how teams, particularly early stage start-up teams, are composed in terms of power, status, and leadership structures, and when and why particular forms of team composition may fuel power struggles and conflicts. When investigating teams, she often adopts a multi-level theoretical approach in understanding how individuals within the same team may differentially experience team structures and processes. In carrying our her research, she employs a variety of methods, including field (ranging from survey to quasi-experimental studies), laboratory, and archival research. Her research appears in academic journals such as the Academy of Management Journal, Journal of Applied Psychology, Organizational Behavior and Human Decision Processes, and Science.

Professor Greer is on the editorial boards at the Academy of Management Journal, Administrative Science Quarterly, Journal of Applied Psychology, Journal of Experimental Social Psychology, Journal of Personality and Social Psychology, and Organizational Behavior and Human Decision Processes, and served as Associate Editor of the journal Small Group Research (2011-2015).

Professor Greer joined the Stanford Graduate School of Business in 2013. She received her BS at the Wharton School of Business at the University of Pennsylvania and her PhD in Social and Organizational Psychology at Leiden University in the Netherlands.
