I’m Paul Green, Jr. I am a Doctoral Candidate in Management at Harvard Business School. My research explores the ways in which relational experiences lead to, or inhibit, important outcomes such as engagement, motivation and performance. I am deeply interested in the role relationships play in enabling, or restraining, employee growth. My work illuminates a critical paradox: deep interpersonal relationships at work may increase employees’ motivation to improve, and their receptiveness to difficult-to-hear feedback, but can decrease the likelihood that relational partners provide the developmental insight or feedback that is so critical to enabling growth.
I was formally a Colleague at The Morning Star Company, one of the most innovative organizations in the world, where I co-founded the Self-Management Institute. My Mission there was to develop and refine superior principles and systems of organizing people. I achieved that Mission through research and through the development and application of organizational principles and systems.
I teach organizational behavior and leadership to leaders across various contexts. You can read more about my teaching here.
