Lili Bao thinks about how do teams develop, grow and adjust their set of activities-internal and external over time and how to design teams to elicit a team’s ability to find high-performing sets of activities? What role do interactions among a team’s activities play in creating and sustaining productive interdependence and competitive advantage? To address these questions, she would like to employ a range of methodological approaches, including in-depth field studies of teams, quantitative methodologies, and simulation models.

My research focuses on the intersection of affect and cognition in the workplace. My interests include what frees employees up to do their best work, and what gets in the way. Specifically, I am interested in mitigating fear (emotion and cognitive schema) in the workplace. I am interested in the awareness, language, and constructive expression of employee fears to reduce allostatic load and reallocate cognitive and affective resources toward employee thriving and organizational flourishing.

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.

Kiko is interested in what motivates and enables people to do extraordinary things, often under great duress and considerable personal cost. 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.
