A social psychologist by training, Dr Daniel A Effron teaches courses on Managing Organisational Behaviour (MOB), Developing Effective Managers and Organisations (DEMO), and Ethics in Work, Organisations, and Society. Before joining London Business School, he taught Negotiations at the Kellogg School of Management, and was a fellow of the Safra Center for Ethics at Harvard University.
His research examines the psychology of (1) how people act in ethically questionable ways without feeling unethical, and (2) what shapes people’s judgments of others’ unethical behaviour. His current projects focus on judgments of hypocrisy and on how cheating behaviour unfolds over time.
Dr Effron's research has appeared in top scholarly publications such as the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology, Organizational Behavior and Human Decision Processes, Journal of Experimental Social Psychology, and Personality and Social Psychology Bulletin. His work has been discussed in media outlets such as The New York Times, Chicago Tribune, Los Angeles Times, and Bloomberg. He received an award for his MBA teaching from London Business School, and his doctoral work was honoured with an American Psychological Association Dissertation Award.
