Dr. Catherine Connelly | Professor, Human Resource and Management, McMaster University, Hamilton

Professor Catherine Connelly will present on the unfortunate phenomenon of knowledge hiding in the workplace. In her interactive session we will talk about three types of knowledge hiding:

  1. Why knowledge hiding is a real problem
  2. Why people hide knowledge (and why some people don't)
  3. What can organizations and managers do differently, and what to do if you notice that people are hiding knowledge from you

Dr. Connelly holds a Canada Research Chair in Organizational Behaviour. She is an associate editor of Human Relations. Her research focuses on the attitudes, behaviours, and experiences of non-standard 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.

She has made presentations about her research to industry and academic groups across Canada and internationlly. 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.
