FSP webinar with Fabiola Gerpott

23. Juni 2020

Even Covid-19 cannot stop female scholars from connecting and supporting each other. Hence we welcomed Prof. Fabiola Gerpott for our first webinar.

Prof. Fabiola Gerpott is a Full Professor and Chair of Leadership at WHU – Otto Beisheim School of Management where she is passionate about studying the micro-dynamics of leadership and learning in organizations to de-velop actionable behavioral insights on how to improve Human Resource Management. Her research has been published in leading journals such as Academy of Management Journal, Academy of Management Learning & Education, and Journal of Personality & Social Psychology.

Prof. Gerpott shared her insights on developing one’s career at the intersection between disciplines and the problem that on the one hand, aspiring scholars are keen to sharpen their profile and “stand for something”, while on the other hand, the young researcher does not want to be labeled as a “blinkered specialist”.
Some of the main questions she covered where:
- How much depth versus breath should scientists cover in their research area(s)?
- What helps to remain focused in the daily life as a researcher?
- How can you organize your work more effectively and avoid getting trapped in the multitasking pitfall?

We thank Prof. Gerpott for taking the time to share her scientific and practical experiences.
