Applying organizational science for the common good
Alan Witt, PhD
As organizational scientists, my colleagues and I are in the business of providing evidence-based ideas for the way you work and the way you lead. We believe that behaviors matter. What you do is as important as what you get done, if not more so. We emphasize: - Long-term organizational health. - Long-term employee well-being. - Ethics and values underlying the common good. - Methodological rigor. - Personality and situational factors.
