GAINESVILLE, Fla. – Dr. Philip M. Podsakoff, Hyatt and Cici Brown Chair in Business and Clinical Professor, is the recipient of the Distinguished Scholarly Contributions to Management Award from the Academy of Management. He will receive the award at the 79thAnnual Meeting of the Academy of Management this August in Boston, Massachusetts.

The Distinguished Scholarly Contributions to Management Award is one of four lifetime career achievement awards presented by the Academy of Management. Nominated by his peers, Podsakoff was chosen from the nearly 20,000-member group from more than 120 countries for his advanced management knowledge and practice and significant contributions to conceptual, empirical or theoretical developments in the field and the creation and dissemination of new knowledge.

“I am truly honored by this award,” Podsakoff said. “It is the highest tribute that a scholar in the field of management can receive.”

Podsakoff joins the ranks of 35 other Distinguished Scholarly Contributions Award winners from universities like Harvard, Stanford and the University of Michigan. He is the first faculty member from the University of Florida to receive the award.

Podsakoff joined the Warrington faculty six years ago after serving as the John F. Mee Chair of Management at Indiana University’s Kelley School of Business for 17 years, more than half of the total time he was at Indiana. At Warrington, he teaches MBA courses in organizational behavior and leadership and doctoral courses in research methods.

He has published in a wide variety of academic journals in the fields of management, marketing, psychology and management information systems. His primary research interests are in the areas of leadership effectiveness, substitutes for leadership, the antecedents and consequences of organizational citizenship behaviors and organizational research methodologies. He is the co-author of two books and several chapters on the topic of organizational citizenship behaviors, and he has published 80 journal articles. His research has been cited over 43,000 times in the Web of Science, and over 103,000 times in Google Scholar.

Podsakoff has served on a number of editorial review boards, including the Journal of Applied Psychology, Journal of Management, Personnel Psychology, Organizational Behavior and Human Decision Processes, and The Leadership Quarterly. In addition to being the recipient of the Academy of Management’s Research Methods Distinguished Career Award in 2013 and the Society for Industrial and Organizational Psychology’s Distinguished Scientific Contributions Award in 2019, he is particularly proud of the fact that he has also received over two dozen teaching effectiveness awards during his career.
