  Insight - Kellogg School Research  
 


Kellogg School of Management faculty offer their latest research in an online digest emphasizing key findings that you can put to work today.

"Name-Letter Branding: How your name can influence your choices" Based on the Research of Miguel Brendl, Amitava Chattopadhyay, Brett W Pelham and Mauricio Carvallo
Most people would scoff at the idea that their names can influence their choices, especially when dealing with major decisions such as selecting a career, a home, or even a partner. This research finds that your liking for the letters of your name might spill over to objects and choices.

"Losing Touch: Power diminishes perception and perspective"
Based on the Research of Adam D. Galinsky, Joe C Magee, M. Ena Inesi and Deborah H. Gruenfeld
Why are some managers seemingly incapable of understanding their subordinates' points of view? This research reveals that high-power individuals rely too heavily on their own perspectives and show a diminished ability to correctly perceive the perspective of others.

Based on the Research of Angela Y. Lee, Punam Anand Keller and Brian Sternthal
