Clinical Associate Professor of Strategy and Management & Organizations
Lynn Wooten’s interest in positive organizational scholarship began during her dissertation research. She studied the strategic management practices of professional service firms and the results indicated that humanistic work cultures were not only an efficient mode of organizing, but also resulted in higher levels of client service and human resource management capabilities. These humanistic work cultures emphasized interpersonal relationships, self-actualization and emotional well being, while simultaneously focusing on the attainment of organizational goals. Currently, her POS-related research explores three areas: (1) positive organizing routines; (2) diversity management; and (3) crisis leadership through resilience and organizational learning.
