Dr. Tyree Mitchell received his PhD in Industrial and Organizational Psychology from DePaul University. He also completed a predoctoral fellowship at the Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University. His research focuses on understanding social processes at work, including leadership, team dynamics, and negotiations. His leadership research focuses on understanding the antecedents (e.g., motivation) of effective leadership behaviors and how leaders develop. He was recently selected as a Greenleaf Scholar by the Greenleaf Center for Servant Leadership. Dr. Mitchell’s work teams research focuses on identifying factors that make teams effective in work settings. He recently completed a major research project for NASA, which involved reviewing existing quantitative studies on team functioning in space analog environments and identifying team factors that may enhance and inhibit team functioning and effectiveness in such environments. His negotiation research focuses on understanding factors (e.g., culture, gender) that impact negotiation outcomes. Dr. Mitchell has presented his research at major national conferences, such as the Society for Industrial and Organizational Psychology (SIOP), and Association for Psychological Science (APS). He has also assisted on consulting projects for several private and public organizations, such as the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), and Federal Aviation Administration (FAA).
