Keaton Fletcher

My research focuses on how leaders can improve the efficacy and well-being of their subordinates. This includes influencing psychological phenomena like trust, interpersonal phenomena like conflict, organizational phenomena like training opportunities, and environmental phenomena like interruptions. I have a particular interest in healthcare teams and leadership. Ultimately, I believe that our science should be readily usable by practitioners, and seek to do research that is both theoretically meaningful and practically important and accessible.
