Christopher Long, assistant professor of management at Georgetown’s McDonough School of Business, was honored with the “Best Paper” award at the Management Theory Conference held in San Francisco on September 28. The paper is titled “Authority and Action through the Eyes of the Manager: The Roles of Control, Trust, and Fairness.”

In the paper, Long and his co-authors, Sim B. Sitkin and Laura B. Cardinal, explain how managers address different authority-focused concerns by implementing controls, demonstrating trustworthiness, and promoting fairness. The research also discusses how their observations and theory refine and extend research on organizational control, trust, fairness, and leadership.
