Earlier this year, the Annual Review of Organizational Psychology and Organizational Behavior published a career perspectives article by Gary Latham in which he discussed his career and views of the field.

As a compliment to that article, Editor Frederick P. Morgeson was able to interview Gary. They had a wide-ranging discussion on the inspiration behind his research, his views of the field, career management advice, and many other topics. From this interview, a series of short video clips were compiled on the following:

  • The Three Secrets to Gary’s Success
  • On the Importance of Mentors
  • Mentors – Seek and Embrace Criticism
  • Overcoming 90% Rejection Rates
  • What Does It Take to Be a Good Mentee?
  • On the Marriage Between Locke and Latham
  • Everything in Moderation
  • Advice for Every Stage of Your Graduate Career
  • On the HR/OB Dichotomy
  • How Do We Make Sure Our Research Is Relevant for Organizations and Managers?
  • Gary’s Soapbox: This Is the Scandal of Our Field
  • Lesson Learned #1: How Do You Win by Putting Other People Down?
  • Lesson Learned #2: Don’t Get Scooped
