We invite you to join us for the upcoming presentation of the OB/HRM Speaker Series.

Dr. Ben Tepper from Ohio State University will be presenting on Friday March 21 from 2-3:30 in the Ernst & Young Boardroom.

His talk is entitled "On the phenomenology of abusive supervision: Distinguishing among perceptions of destructive behavior, injurious intentions, and abuse" (see below or attached for abstract).

Please feel free to pass the invitation to others who may be interested in attending. All are welcome.

We hope to see you there!

Approximately 100 studies of abusive supervision have been published since 2000, most of those works having gone to print in just the last five years. There is good reason to believe that for the foreseeable future scholarly and practical interest in the concept will remain strong. It is with that in mind that Iíve under-taken studies that are designed to address some fundamental problems in the way that abusive supervision is conceptualized and modeled. The first set of studies take up the question, what constitutes "abuse" from the perspective of targeted subordinates? The second set of studies explores whether recip-rocating supervisory hostility is ultimately beneficial or harmful to subordinate targets. The results of these studies reveal some surprises and suggest some changes to the way we model abu-sive supervision in future research.
