Hackman to Be Honored at APS Annual Convention

A symposium on organizational teams will pay tribute to J. Richard Hackman, a leading social and organizational psychologist who passed away on January 8, 2013. Hackman will also be honored posthumously with the APS James McKeen Cattell Fellow Award for lifetime achievement in applied psychological research and for the impact his research has had on society at large.

Hackman was an expert in teams whose work improved the safety and quality of work in domains as diverse as intelligence, aviation, sports, and art. He conducted research that zeroed in on the conditions and leadership styles that allow teams to thrive.

Suzanne T. Bell will chair the special symposium, “A Tribrute to Richard J. Hackman: So there Is an ‘I’ in Teams…and a ‘We’….and a ‘Circumstance’…” on May 15, 2013, at the APS Annual Convention in Washington, DC, from 10:30 AM to 12:20 PM. Other presenters will include Stephen E. Humphrey, Anita Woolley, John Mathieu, and Ruth Wageman.
