In his book, Uncertainty, Jonathan Fields wrote, “If only we’d learned how to harness and ride rather than hunt and kill the butterflies that live in the gut of every person who strives to create something extraordinary from nothing.” Through my research in organizations, I hope to find the mechanisms for why we ‘hunt and kill’ our butterflies at work (e.g., power asymmetry, organizational aesthetics), and am interested in identifying that which will instead liberate employees to ‘harness and ride’ those butterflies to our best work and best selves at work. Methodologies include qualitative research, such as field research, and mixed-methods.

PhD Organizational Behavior, 2013 - Present


My research explores the impact of collaborative infrastructure on social support for resilient, mission-driven organizations and the role of capacity building organizations in driving complex sector change. My goal is to contribute to theoretical and empirical understandings of how structural innovations and new practices that emerge from collaborative networks create value and contribute to healthy organizations. Shared resources, improved knowledge-management systems, interdisciplinary teams, and inter-organizational coordination are examples of such structural innovations that create long-term value for all stakeholders and can catalyze social innovation and broader institutional change. My work is dedicated to studying the connection between social and structural supports in mission-driven organizations and examines how relationships affect perceptions of value for systemic-level capacity building efforts and investments in the social sector. I propose that with the right combination of design and dissemination, such alliances and tools can catalyze change that is not only sustained, but also systemic and transformational.

Dissertation Title: "Breaking the Thought Barrier: How Individuals Transform their Lifeworld to Create Transformative Change in their Field"

She is particularly interested when people create a paradigm shift – changing the way we view the world, changing our view of what is possible; or when people are pathfinders, creating a new business model or market. She aims to understand the mechanics, psychological and psycho-social, of what prompts people to set off into uncharted territory, rewriting the rules to create a new, revolutionary way of doing things. Kiko previously consulted in strategic organizational alignment, change leadership, and innovation at McKinsey, Accenture and for the Insead Blue Ocean Strategy Network. She has an MBA from Insead and a BA in History from Yale.
