Additionally, he is looking into how these factors dynamically relate to unethical behavior, as well as desirable work performance. His teaching interests include leadership coaching, leading effective teams and organizational change.

    Dr. Christian received his PhD in management from the University of Arizona, his master's degree in industrial and organizational psychology from Tulane University and his bachelor's degree from the University of Wisconsin at Madison.
