Vanessa Druskat, PhD, Associate Professor of Organizational Behavior and Management, UNH

Today’s guest is my colleague Dr. Vanessa Druskat, associate professor of Organizational Behavior and Management here at the University of New Hampshire. Vanessa studies and teaches about team emotional intelligence, helping organizations develop more effective norms and behaviors. In the full length version of the interview, we go through Vanessa’s intellectual journey from an early interest in social work to work on leadership, teams, and emotional intelligence. We talk in detail about a few of her papers, particularly a Harvard Business Review paper she coauthored called Building the Emotional Intelligence of Teams, which I have included a link to in the show notes below.
