What is it about?

It is typical of a student, for example, to conform to the norms of their peers to avoid the risk of humiliation for speaking their mind during a discussion. At work, such socially risky occasions contribute to a young leader's development as a mature leader. Accordingly, we examined whether the social risk-attitudes of sport graduates change over time on a matched-subjects sample

Why is it important?

Our matched-subjects observations at school and in early-career revealed that social risk-attitude and leadership orientation change in school-to-work transition, and that the latter predicts the former at both times. Social risk-taking after school varies by employment status and gender.


Working on this project was a great experience in both academic and social dimensions. I had the opportunity to contact our graduates and learn from their early-career experiences.
