Dr. Williams teaches courses in Organizational Behavior, Human Resources Management and Staffing at LSUS and her research interests include interpersonal conflict, the dynamics of groups and teams, leadership, and social networks. She has published research which explores developing creativity as a leadership asset and is working on research which explores the implementation of 'world class' leadership in organizations. Dr. Williams has also published articles in the area of conflict, one of which proposes the development and use of a behavioral taxonomy to address conflict in organizations, and the other which examines the potential use of social networks as a mediational approach to organizational conflict. Dr. Williams is currently working on selection issues in organizations which might arise as a result of the increased use of social networking in general.
