Research details

Elizabeth Wolfe Morrison is a Professor in the Management and Organizations Department and the ITT Harold Geneen Professor in Creative Management. From 2012 to 2018, she was the Vice Dean of Faculty at the Stern School. Professor Morrison's research focuses on 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. Her research also 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.
