Dr. Marianna Delegach received her Ph.D. in Organizational and Social Psychology from the Bar-Ilan University in 2011 and completed it on a direct track for a Ph.D for exceptional students. Her research interests focus on employees' motivation and organizational leadership. She has completed training in group facilitation and has experience as an organizational consultant for private and public organizational sectors. Thus, Marianna brings together academic and applied knowledge and skills.
My research has focused on the development and outcomes of personal motivation in organizational context. Specifically, I examined how the employees’ regulatory focus influences employees' attitudes, emotions, and behaviors. My more recent theoretical models and research studies examine cultural context and work groups as the antecedents of personal regulatory orientations. My other area of interest is the organizational/workgroup leadership and the linkage between leadership and the employees' reactions to leadership style, and the consequences of these reactions to organizational outcomes.
