Professor Yip's primary stream of research explores the antecedents and consequences of emotions in organizations. In particular, his research demonstrates that anger promotes deception and negotiation impasses, but diminishes empathy and perspective-taking. His work also considers the consequences of anxiety and gratitude, and the role of individual differences in emotional intelligence. In recent work, he establishes the relationship between organizational culture and emotions.
A second stream of his research focuses on incivility. He introduces a new conceptualization of communication called competitive incivility or "trash-talking". His research shows that trash-talking is commonly encountered in organizations. His findings reveal that trash-talking triggers perceptions of rivalry, boosts effort-based performance, diminishes creativity, and promotes unethical behavior.
His research has been published in leading journals such as Organizational Behavior & Human Decision Processes, Research in Organizational Behavior, Psychological Science, and Social Psychological & Personality Science. Professor Yip teaches the undergraduate and Executive MBA core Management and organizational course.
He earned his Ph.D. in organizational behavior from the Rotman School of Management at the University of Toronto and completed his postdoctoral fellowship in the Department of Psychology at Yale University. Professor Yip was a Lecturer & Research Scholar at the Wharton School where he conducted research and taught the Negotiations course. Professor Yip joined the McDonough School of Business at Georgetown University in 2017 as a tenure-track professor.
