RESEARCH AGENDA

Contextual changes are taking place that alter the way work is done in organizations and increased employee diversity impacts how people work together. The introduction of technology to the workplace has allowed people to work from anywhere and even leaders and followers who are collocated may conduct much of their interaction electronically. I am especially curious about what happens when those leaders and followers are “distant” from each other.
