New SLHRD faculty member Tyree Mitchell selected as Greenleaf Scholar


Tyree Mitchell, a SLHRD assistant professor to begin this fall, was selected as a Greenleaf Scholar by the Greenleaf Center for Servant Leadership for his research as a graduate teaching fellow at DePaul University in Chicago, Illinois.

Mitchell earned his PhD in the Psychology of Leadership with a specialization in Industrial/Organizational (IO) Psychology. His research examines the effects of several individual differences (core self-evaluation [CSE], emotional intelligence [EL], extraversion, and agreeableness) and their interactive effects on servant leadership behaviors.

Mitchell also hypothesizes the need for affiliation to mediate the agreeableness-servant leadership relationship and the need for power to mediate the extraversion-servant leadership relationship. His research attempts to provide evidence for servant leadership behavior by examining the differing effects of these antecedents on transformational and ethical leadership.

Mitchell's selection by the Greenleaf committee reflects the value that the Greenleaf Center for Servant Leadership places on his research and his commitment to deepening the understanding of the impacts of servant leadership on organizations.
