I am happy to share this edition of the Bauer Business Minds newsletter. Our Bauer Business Focus show on Houston Public Media is onto its second guest: Dr. Elizabeth Anderson-Fletcher, an Associate Professor at the Bauer College of Business and a volunteer firefighter with Cypress Creek Fire Department. In this episode and the related website Liz discusses the mental toughness and resilience that fire fighters need to have, so that they can operate at their very best on days when others are at their very worst!
We also have new work published by Marketing doctoral student Mohsen Pourmasoudi, on the “peer effect”. He investigates the work pressure caused by peers in a collaborative work environment, the effect it has on output, and, offers practical solutions to remedy the problem.
We are gearing up this week for our 2020 Inaugural Doctoral Working Paper showcase and competition. Please do stop by between 9.30 a.m. and 11 a.m. on Friday, Feb 14 in CBB 328 to support our Bauer doctoral students and check out some cutting-edge business research!
