Bio/Research

Catherine K. Lam is an associate professor of organizational behavior and human resource management at the Lazaridis School of Business and Economics, Wilfrid Laurier University. Catherine received her PhD in Organizational Behavior from the Hong Kong Polytechnic University. Prior to joining Laurier, she worked at the City University of Hong Kong.

Her research focuses on social comparison, leadership, emotions, job stress, interpersonal relationships, and team processes in organizations.

Catherine's research theme revolves around understanding social exchange relationships among employees and between leaders and members. As major part of this theme, she is interested in understanding the impact of positive and negative leadership styles on employees through multiple theoretical lenses.

Her second research area relates to leader-member exchanges and member-member exchanges with particular focus on social comparison.

The third research stream is in the area of employees’ well-being. This research broadly focuses on social exchange relationships with an emphasis on job stress (e.g., emotional exhaustion/ego depletion) and safety.
