Thu, January 31, 2013
Art Markman, Annabel Iron Worsham Centennial Professor

Dr. Art Markman has written a new book, Habits of Leadership, which is now available to order online. In this book, he demonstrates how aspects of personality influence the habits one brings to leadership situations. He does this by demonstrating the correlation of personality and habits, and the impact they have on leadership potential and innovation success. By utilizing the “Big 5” personality characteristics and other key variables Dr. Markman developed a personality profiler, which can be used to test oneself, using this tool to develop better and smarter habits of knowledge acquisition. 

Art Markman is Annabel Iron Worsham Centennial Professor of Psychology (area: Cognitive Systems). He is the author of several books, including Smart Thinking, and has published over 125 scholarly articles on topics in analogical reasoning, categorization, decision making, and motivation.
