Like a boomerang, two of our past University presenters are coming back to update us on their research. Why? Because you told us they were great; that their topics resonated with you; and that you would have liked a deeper dive. Our session will unfold in three acts.


The professors will take turns sharing key new insights/findings from their recent research and highlighting pragmatic take-aways for leaders and organizations. The topics will be:

  • Knowledge Hiding in Organizations;
  • Organizational Cynicism.


Each professor will be paired with a CHRO. After the professor’s presentation, the CHRO will comment on the new research insights and recommendations. A lively point/counterpoint discussion will follow.


Working in small groups, the live audience will engage in discussion about all the new insights/findings and their implications. The remote audience will reflect on the content provided by the professors. Both audiences will have the opportunity to produce questions for the concluding panel and suggest ideas for future research. The event will close with the panel of professors and CHROs responding to questions and suggestions.


The two professors will provide an exclusive “sneak preview” of research studies currently underway at their respective universities.


  • Our local universities are always busy conducting research studies about the people side of business.
  • But because of the classic gap between Academia and Corporate Canada, we miss opportunities to leverage new insights gained through these research projects…

    ...except if you attend this event!


  • Discover the most valuable insights from the latest research studies conducted on the following topics: Knowledge Hiding in Organizations; and Organizational Cynicism.
  • Decide how you can best leverage these new insights for your organization or client organizations. 


Dr. Catherine Connelly holds a Canada Research Chair (Tier 2) in Organizational Behaviour and is a member of the College of New Scholars of the Royal Society of Canada (RSC). She is an associate editor of Human Relations. Her research focuses on the attitudes, behaviours, and experiences of non-standard workers (e.g., temporary agency workers, contractors, temporary foreign workers), the effects of leadership styles on leader well-being, and knowledge hiding in organizations. Catherine also conducts applied research with several Canadian organizations in both the private and non-profit sector.

In addition to her research success, Catherine is a past winner and frequent teaching award nominee for her teaching in the MBA and PhD programs. She has made presentations about her research to industry and academic groups across Canada and the US, and in Sweden, Norway, the Netherlands, Slovenia, Germany, Spain, and Portugal. Her research has been featured in the New York Times, the Globe and Mail, the National Post, and on CTV and CBC radio and TV.

Dr. Kristyn Scott is an Associate Professor of Human Resource Management and Organizational Behaviour. She received her PhD in Industrial/Organizational Psychology from the University of Waterloo. Her research interests centre on leadership and social cognition, with a specific focus on gender bias. Dr. Scott also studies the impact of negative organizational attitudes, such as organizational cynicism, on leader-follower relationships. Kristyn is an Academic Fellow at the Ted Rogers Leadership Centre.

Krystin regularly presents at conferences in Canada and the USA. Her papers have been published in various Human Resources journals.
