John Fleenor, senior faculty member in Research, Innovation and Product Development at the Center for Creative Leadership (CCL®), was named a Fellow of the Society for Industrial and Organizational Psychology during SIOP’s annual conference in Philadelphia.
Fleenor was one of 26 distinguished industrial-organizational psychologists inducted into this year’s class. Fellows are honored for unique and outstanding contributions or performance in I-O psychology through research, practice, teaching, administration, and/or professional service.
The SIOP citation noted that Fleenor, who has worked in leadership education and research for more than 20 years, “is a coauthor of the first article to introduce polynomial regression to the self-other rating agreement realm, as well as two of the more significant review articles in this area. He also co-authored one of the first articles examining these issues in a cross-cultural context, and the first article to employ three advanced statistical techniques (polynomial regression, random coefficient modeling, and relative weight analysis) to investigate self-other rating agreement. He is one of the recognized experts and contributors to this area of scientific inquiry. His body of work — research, practice, academics, professional and SIOP service — is the SIOP ideal of being at the science-practice interface.”
Fleenor is coauthor of Leveraging the Impact of 360-Degree Feedback published by Pfeiffer in 2008. He is also a coauthor of an article that was selected as the best paper of 1998 by the Human Resources Division of the Academy of Management, and he is listed in Who’s Who in the Management Sciences. Additionally, he received a Distinguished Reviewer Award from the Buros Institute of Mental Measurements. He serves on the editorial boards of Leadership Quarterly, Human Resource Management, and the Journal of Business and Psychology, and is the former book review editor of Personnel Psychology.
Fleenor also has contributed to the research and development of several widely used CCL assessments including Boundary Spanning Leadership 360 and the Leadership Strategy Survey.
