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 how individuals influence others at work to achieve common goals, specifically within leadership, team, and negotiation contexts. He was recently selected as a Greenleaf Scholar by the Greenleaf Center for Servant Leadership. He also 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. Dr. Mitchell has presented his research at major national conferences, such as the Society for Industrial and Organizational Psychology (SIOP). 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).
