Cornell Directory Entry


Tony Simons, the Louis B. Schaeneman Jr. Professor of Innovation & Dynamic Management, teaches organizational behavior, negotiation and leadership at the Cornell School of Hotel Administration. His research examines trust and credibility as relational, individual and collective qualities. Simons' research has focused on how well people are seen as keeping their word–delivering on their promises and living espoused values. This simple perception has huge practical consequence and is challenging to maintain impeccably. His research and consulting work supports managers in meeting this challenge. He speaks, trains, consults, and designs surveys for organizations both within and beyond the hospitality industry.
