Today we’re going to explore a few great topics with Joe Allen, focusing in particular on a cool nexus of organizational psychology and the world of healthcare. Specifically, we will delve into:

  • Joe’s research on human behavior within healthcare and what we seem to know about how human behavior contributes to patient safety and other meaningful outcomes.

  • How Joe’s research also helps us understand more about communication and its importance in creating adaptive, resilient teams and organizations.

  • What implications these areas of research have for leaders and those around them.

Joe Allen is a Professor of Industrial and Organizational Psychology at the University of Utah. He holds a Ph.D. in organizational science from The University of North Carolina at Charlotte, and he previously held faculty appointments at the University of Nebraska-Omaha and Creighton University. He is widely published, and his research primarily focuses on the study of workplace meetings, organizational community engagement, and occupational safety and health. He directs the Center for Meeting Effectiveness housed in the Rocky Mountain Center for Occupational and Environmental Health, and he has provided consulting to numerous nonprofit and for-profit organizations. His research has attracted internal and external grant funding of more than $4 million since 2010.
