Here we go, our eagerly expected Academy of Management Journal paper on knowledge hiding and creativity has been just released in print in the February 2014 issue. Welcome to read and comment!

Today, we (that is Matej Černe, Christina Nerstad, and Anders Dysvik) held a research seminar on an article that we will present at the Academy of Management Conference 2012, Boston, MA. It has also been chosen for the publication in Best paper conference proceedings. Its’ central idea is that knowledge hiding of an individual creates a so-called distrust loop which in turn damages one’s self creativity (not just creativity of coworkers). And performance climate just makes things worse (to put it in simple terms). However, that there is a cure for that called a mastery climate – a climate that promotes development, growth and collaboration among colleagues. Great discussions and most helpful comments from the colleagues from Department of Leadership and Organisational Behavior, BI Norwegian Business School.
