Research in Progress
Topic: Transformational Leadership, Affective Displays and Follower Thinking Processes.
In this study we explore the interactive effects of leadership, and leader affective displays
on follower thinking processes. Using a 2x2 experimental design, participants are randomly
assigned to transformational or non-transformational leadership displaying either positive
affect or negative affect. The participants are tasked with a divergent thinking task and
a convergent thinking task. The order in which the tasks are presented is randomized.
Follower persistence (motivation) and performance on the tasks are the dependent variables.
Status: Data collection complete. Currently coding data. Analysis and write up pending.

Topic: A Dynamic Dialectical Model of Individual Innovation
A new model if proposed for individual innovation. It adds dynamism and a dialectical
perspective. Current models of innovation do not adequately capture these aspects of
innovation. We club activities required for innovation into "convergence seeking" and
"divergence seeking", joined by an iterative process. This model helps to explain the
inconsistent and sometimes contradictory findings in the literature of individual innovation.
A computational model (system dynamics) is planned to be used for initial validation of
this model.
Status: Initial model has been developed. Feedback is being requested for this model.
Topic: Leading for Innovation: A balancing act
The role of leadership in innovation is explored through a dynamic dialectical perspective. A
dynamic dialectical model of individual innovation that is developed as a separate research
activity is sought to be further validated during this research. We theorize about the
mechanisms by which leaders can have an effect on individual innovation and then validate
the model by a phased multi-report cross sectional study.
Hypothesis and study design is done. Indian organizations are being invited to participate
in this research study.
