Adam M. Kleinbaum is an Associate Professor in the Strategy and Management area at the Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth. He teaches leadership and organizational behavior, social networks, and an international learning expedition to Israel. He is co-founder of the Dartmouth Interdisciplinary Network Research Group and previously served on the faculty at Harvard Business School as a post-doctoral fellow. Prior to his academic career, Adam worked in the management consulting and financial services industries. Since becoming a business school professor, he has consulted to many companies on issues of leadership and organizations.
Adam’s research examines the evolution of social networks in organizations. He has shown how formal and informal structures and processes, prior career history, and individual personality contribute to network structure. New research explores the neuroscience of social networks, exploring how the fundamental mechanisms of network evolution can give rise to “echo chambers” that insulate us from divergent information, with negative consequences for leaders and their organizations.
His scholarly research has been published in Nature Communications, Administrative Science Quarterly, Organization Science, Management Science, the Strategic Management Journal, Psychological Science, the Strategic Entrepreneurship Journal, Connections, and Harvard Business Review and has been covered by many media outlets, including the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, Scientific American, Huffington Post, Fast Company, and New York Magazine’s “Science of Us” column.
