Dr. Lisa Rosh is an assistant professor in management and human resources at Lehman College. She has held academic positions at The New School, Yeshiva University, George Washington University and Singapore Management University. At these universities, she developed and taught courses on the undergraduate, graduate, and executive level in Management, Human Resources, Research Methods, and Organizational Behavior. Her teaching emphasizes the partnership of theory and action, focusing on organizational issues and solutions that apply new knowledge and skills. To implement this vision and increase learning and development, she uses individual and cooperative experiential learning techniques such as journals, exercises, simulations, and field projects. These methods help students understand and apply the concepts and theories taught in class.
Her research interests include inter- and intra-group relational processes and their related structures, as well as innovative formal developmental relationships and their use in developing leadership and managerial competencies. Currently she is working on a grounded theory study that examines intra-group boundary development within an intergroup context, in addition to a mixed-method cases study on the relevance of formal developmental relationships for developing leadership competencies.
Her work appears in Human Resource Management Review, Journal of Management Education, Organization Management Journal, and Harvard Business Review. She has presented her work at numerous national and international conferences including the Academy of Management, American Psychological Association, Society for Industrial and Organizational Psychology, and the Organizational Behavior Teaching Society.
