There are a number of people who have provided me with tremendous support

throughout my Ph.D. student tenure and with respect to my dissertation.

First of all, I’d like to thank all of my dissertation committee members: Paul

Tesluk, Hank Sims, Paul Hanges, Cindy Stevens, and Susan Taylor. I am grateful to

Paul Tesluk, my dissertation advisor, who has been a source of great support to me

and has always constructively challenged me to develop my professional skills. I wish

to thank Hank for his moral support and advice throughout the Ph.D. program, for

being a great mentor, and for being there for me during difficult times. I also greatly

appreciate the support and advice from Paul Hanges, Cindy Stevens, and Susan


A special thanks to Myeong-Gu Seo for assisting me with the data-collection

process for the dissertation. I would also like to thank Henry Moon for his research

mentoring. I appreciate the support of several other faculty members as well: Ian

Williamson, Kay Bartol, Anil Gupta, Ken Smith, Scott Turner, and Dave Lepak.

I’d also like to thank my classmates for their collegiality and for helping me

laugh throughout these years. A special thanks to Riki Takeuchi, Qing Cao, Long
