      Bazerman, Max H.; Gino, Francesca (2012)

      Staats, Bradley R.; KC, Diwas S.; Gino, Francesca (2015-08-17)

      Cable, Daniel M.; Gino, Francesca; Staats, Brad (Cornell University, The Johnson School, 2013)
      Socialization theory has focused on enculturating new employees such that they develop pride in their new organization and internalize its values. Drawing on authenticity research, we propose that the initial stage of ...

      Kouchaki, Maryam; Gino, Francesca; Jami, Ata (American Psychological Association, 2013-09-06)

      Jachimowicz, Jon M.; Lee, Julia J.; Staats, Bradley R.; Menges, Jochen I.; Gino, Francesca (2016-02-23)
      To get to work, employees need to commute. Across the globe, the average commute is 38 minutes each way per day. It is well known that longer commutes have negative effects on employees’ well-being and job-related outcomes. ...

      Casciaro, Tiziana; Gino, Francesca; Kouchaki, Maryam (Cornell University, The Johnson School, 2014-10-28)

      Simonsohn, Uri; Gino, Francesca (SAGE Publications, 2013)
      Many professionals, from auditors and lawyers, to clinical psychologists and journal editors, divide a continuous flow of judgments into subsets. College admissions interviewers, for instance, evaluate but a handful of ...

      Moore, Celia; Wakeman, S. Wiley; Gino, Francesca (2014-11-12)

      Gino, Francesca; Ariely, Dan (American Psychological Association, 2012)
      Creativity is a common aspiration for individuals, organizations, and societies. Here, however, we test whether creativity increases dishonesty. We propose that a creative personality and a creative mindset promote ...
    • Does "Could" Lead to Good? Toward a Theory of Moral Insight 

      Zhang, Ting; Gino, Francesca; Margolis, Joshua D. (2014-12-09)
      We introduce the construct of moral insight and study how it can be elicited when people face ethical dilemmas—challenging decisions that feature tradeoffs between competing and seemingly incompatible values. Moral insight ...

      Green, Paul Isaac; Finkel, Eli J.; Fitzsimons, Grainne M.; Gino, Francesca (Elsevier BV, 2017)
      We present theory suggesting that experiences at work that meet employees’ expectations of need fulfillment drive work engagement. Employees have needs (e.g., a desire to be authentic) and they also have expectations for ...

      Moore, Celia; Gino, Francesca (2013-09-03)

      Kouchaki, M.; Oveis, C.; Gino, Francesca (American Psychological Association, 2014-10-28)
      The present studies investigate the hypothesis that guilt influences risk-taking by enhancing one's sense of control. Across multiple inductions of guilt, we demonstrate that experimentally induced guilt enhances optimism ...
    • Handshaking Promotes Cooperative Dealmaking 

      Schroeder, Juliana; Risen, Jane; Gino, Francesca; Norton, Michael Irwin (2014-12-09)

    • Humblebragging: A Distinct – and Ineffective – Self-Presentation Strategy 

      Sezer, Ovul; Gino, Francesca; Norton, Michael Irwin (2015-04-24)
      Humblebragging – bragging masked by a complaint – is a distinct and, given the rise of social media, increasingly ubiquitous form of self-promotion. We show that although people often choose to humblebrag when motivated ...

      Swift, Samuel A.; Moore, Don A.; Sharek, Zachariah S.; Gino, Francesca (Public Library of Science, 2013-09-03)

    • The Ironic Effects of Motivational Tools on Attention and Decision Making 

      Fletcher, Pinar Fethiye (2016-05-02)
