Mark Stein has a First Class BA Honours degree from the University of Warwick; an MSc (Econ) from the London School of Economics; an MPhil from the University of Cambridge; and a PhD from Brunel University. He has also studied psychoanalytic theory and method for many years at the Tavistock Clinic.
Mark has been a Senior Lecturer at Imperial College London, a Research Fellow at the London School of Economics and Brunel University, and a Researcher and Consultant at the Tavistock Institute. He has held visiting or associate posts at the Tavistock Clinic, London Business School and the Helsinki University of Technology, and has been an Adjunct Professor and Visiting Scholar at INSEAD, Fontainebleau. He is currently an advisor to the Centre for Organizational Psychology, Roskilde University, Denmark.
Mark has been an External Doctoral Examiner at HEC Paris, the Tavistock Clinic, and Royal Holloway University of London; was an external examiner at the University of Oxford between 2009-2011; and is currently an external assessor at the International Global Leadership Centre, INSEAD, Fontainebleau. He reviews papers for numerous scholarly journals and is on the International Editorial Board of ‘Organization Studies’ and ‘Journal of Management Inquiry’. Previously, he spent a decade on the International Editorial Panel of ‘Human Relations’ and was an Associate Editor of ‘Organisational and Social Dynamics’. He has also received funding from the DTI, the Marine Safety Agency, and the Tavistock Institute for Medical Psychology.
His publications include two edited books and numerous journal articles and book chapters. In 2005 Mark received an Emerald Citation of Excellence for his paper on the ‘critical period of disasters’ (published in ‘Human Relations’ in 2004). Of 15, 000 management publications worldwide that year, the citation is awarded to the top 50.
Mark has given keynote presentations at conferences in London (OPUS, 2009), Roskilde (COP, 2011), Turin (UNITO, 2011), Milan (ARIELE, 2013), Limerick (DLC, 2013) and Oxford (ISPSO, 2013). He has also run leadership workshops for some years, including at Imperial College London, INSEAD, and the University of Leicester.
In 2007 Mark received the Richard Normann Prize, intended to reward ‘outstanding insights into the service economy, value co-production, and business innovation and change’. For his work on toxicity – and based on an abridged version of his paper published in ‘Organization Studies’ in 2007 – Mark was in fact the only-ever recipient of the prize, held in trust by Templeton College (University of Oxford) during the years 2005-2008.
In June 2012 Mark received the iLab prize for innovative scholarship, co-sponsored by the European Academy of Management (EURAM) and the Swiss-based Imagination Foundation Laboratory. The award – a diploma and 12,000 Swiss Francs – was for his stream of scholarship using psychoanalytic ideas in relation to organizations and for his credit crisis paper (published in ‘Organization’ in 2011) in particular, and was presented at the EURAM Annual Conference in Holland.
In August 2012, together with co-author Jonathan Pinto of Imperial College London, Mark received the ‘Group & Organization Management’ best paper prize for the article ‘A Gang at Work in Enron’. The plaque was presented at the annual Academy of Management Conference in Boston, USA.
Mark’s work has been reported in various newspapers, media and blogs around the world. His work has been translated into French, German and Italian, and he has been interviewed by INSEAD Knowledge, TV3 Malaysia, Bloomberg Businessweek, BBC World Service and BBC Radio 4’s ‘Today’ programme.
Mark’s research interests lie in the fields of leadership; groups and teams; organisational learning; the customer-employee interface; human and organisational aspects of risk and disaster; emotions in organisations; emotional intelligence; systems psychodynamics and the psychoanalytic study of organisations.
