Michele Williams : Research

I produce theory, empirical findings and teaching tools that improve our understanding of how people build trusting high performing work relationships. 

Specifically, I research how people build social relationships that facilitate economic transactions and the contextual factors that facilitate and constrain their ability build collaborative, productive relationships at work.  I investigate processes such as perspective taking, threat regulation, emotion and trust as well as contextual factors such as demographic composition and power.
