Ashli Carter is a Lecturer in the Management Division at Columbia Business School. Prior to joining CBS faculty, she taught MBA and undergraduate courses in leadership and professional ethics at NYU Stern where she was an Assistant Professor/Faculty Fellow of Management and Organizations. She studies how seeing the “forest” versus seeing the “trees” shapes three common workplace experiences: 1) how individuals respond to unexpected or unwanted outcomes, 2) the way individuals work with similar and dissimilar others, and 3) how individuals exchange information and ideas to reach group decisions. She is also interested in the stereotypes individuals hold about which social groups think more abstractly versus more concretely, and examines how these stereotypes shape opportunities in the workplace and in society more broadly. In addition to her teaching and research, she works with professionals one-on-one and in small groups as a leadership coach to share simple, research-backed strategies that help individuals better understand themselves and others, align their everyday behaviors with their underlying values, and expand into their highest potential self. Ashli Carter received a Ph.D. and M.A. in Management from Columbia Business School and a B.A. (with honors) in Psychology from Stanford University.
