UCLA Anderson: Teamwork and Status
Michael Totty’s featured piece covers UCLA Anderson School of Management professor Corrine Bendersky’s recent research on status in the workplace.
The study shows that status within the workplace is dynamic, not static.
“Researchers have seen that high status can be gained both through self-promotion and unselfish dedication to the group. Further study can indicate whether the most effective approach depends on the makeup of the team or on the nature of the assignment.” -Totty
