Research Interests

My research areas include organizational behaviour, human resource management & development, leadership development, dysfunctional individual & organizational behaviour, risk & risk taking, and theory development. Some of my more recent research focuses on extreme forms of ‘dark side’ organizational behaviour i.e. , and within global banking and financial institutions at the centre of the financial crisis. Other research areas include CSR, ethics, diversity & inclusion, organizational derailment, and the augmentation and development of theories associated with these research themes.For prospective Research Masters or Ph.D students, please contact me directly to discuss possible research topics.

Teaching Interests

  • Clíodhna delivers lectures at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels. Her current teaching load is listed below.
  • Clíodhna's primary interests relate to how people function and dysfunction in organizational and institutional settings. This orientation allows for a more balanced view of organizational reality. The lectures delivered explore the difficult balance many people and organisations deal with in responding to the diverse range of stakeholder demands. This not only explores the people/organizational issues involved in achieving and sustaining competitive advantage but looks at the potential issues that may arise when stakeholder imbalances emerge. Topics covered in many of the lectures include responsibility, accountability and sustainability [management / leadership]; transparency, openness and inclusiveness [HRM/D policy development]; organizational function & dysfunction [leadership / HR relationship]; Culture, Climate & Cohesion [addressing socialisation benefits / issues]; Ethics, Engagement & Environment [Sustainability, Social Responsibility & Organizational Stability]
