Professor Bateman specializes in organizational behavior. He conducts research on leadership, problem solving, motivation, decision making, personality, stress, and managerial goals. Current research projects focus on behavior and decision making in the domain of climate change. Professor Bateman publishes articles in academic and professional journals, writes textbooks, presents papers at professional meetings, and participates in executive education programs. His most recent article concerns the work styles of scientists as they pursue deep versus broad contributions to knowledge. A recent book chapter discusses ways in which people can develop as leaders, from a self-directed rather than a classroom or program perspective. Another recent book chapter discusses “proactive behavior,” in which people create extraordinary change by overcoming personal and situational constraints, surpassing others’ expectations, and creating and seizing opportunities. Professor Bateman teaches workshops in North America, Europe, and Asia and is working on the 14th edition of his textbook Management: Leading & Collaborating in a Competitive World (McGraw-Hill/Irwin).
