Teaching Interests

Professor Luckman favors a teaching model that combines a dynamic classroom with mentorship. In addition to content mastery, she emphasizes broader themes: problem-solving for complexity, continuous learning and improvement, how ethical, adaptive leaders cultivate higher performing organizations, the vital roles of communication and social interaction, and the paramount goal of creating value for stakeholders, especially the end customer. She is specifically interested in leadership, ethics, negotiation, management, organizational development and change.

Her significant experience with a major corporation, including five years in management, adds valuable insight to her teaching. Having led teams that successfully battled to achieve demanding performance objectives amplify her ability to prepare students to lead with impact.

Research Interests

Dr. Luckman’s approach to research is anchored by the idea that management research has three aims: advancing knowledge, ensuring students are exposed to thought leadership, and strengthening the capacity of firms to create value. The lens she uses is best described as the human dimensions of organizations, with the concomitant challenges and opportunities. Her scholarly mission statement: to find and develop creative ways to promote individual and organizational flourishing. To support this mission, her principal research interests are leadership, ethics, organizational culture, and management education.

Currently, the heart of her research program asks the following question: how can we nurture organizational environments that encourage individuals, teams, and particularly leaders, to behave more virtuously, thereby creating more ethical - and more effective - organizations?

In addition to her academic work, Dr. Luckman developed her leadership perspectives during nearly a decade in private industry. Experience working with all kinds of people to achieve demanding objectives in the for-profit world animates her research.
