Integrity: leaders who have it can reduce it in employees

Tue, 2017-04-18 11:30

A new study, authored in part by Desautels Associate Professor Patricia Faison Hewlin, explores how leaders who have greater integrity can have an inverse effect on the integrity of their employees. Essentially, followers can take on a façade of conformity, where they pretend to mesh with the company’s values in order to ensure their own success. A leader who is an example of integrity could cause employees to suppress their own values in order to do what they see as most helpful to the leader.

New book by Steven Huebner explains Verdi's craft

Tue, 2017-04-18 10:19

Despite being the most-performed operatic composer in the world, there’s a surprising lack of studies written on the style of Giuseppe Verdi’s works — a problem that Prof. Steven Huebner is addressing head-on. Recently, Huebner put out the first book in any language that offers an in-depth analysis of the composer’s musical style in the context of his 23 Italian operas, from Aida to Ernani.
