Professor Andreas Wihler

Associate Professor of Management

Not Known


After graduating in psychology, he completed his dissertation at the University of Bonn with focus on Industrial- and Organizational Psychology. During that time he was also guest researcher at the Judge Business School in Cambridge, UK. Before joining the University of Exeter, he was Assistant Professor of Organizational Behaviour at the Frankfurt School of Finance & Management.

Andreas’ research falls at the intersection of organizational politics, leadership, and individual differences. Thus, his research focuses on perceptions and consequences of both positive and negative leader behaviours as well as employee proactivity. He is also interested in the effects of personality and motivation on job performance and career success. Andreas works in international research collaborations with various organizations around the globe.

Andreas has received funding for his research from both the DAAD (German Academic Exchange Service) and the DFG (German Research Foundation).

His research has been published in journals such as Academy of Management Journal, Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, Journal of Management, Journal of Organizational Behaviour, and Leadership Quarterly.

Research projects

Currrently, Andreas is working on a project that investigates why employees perceive leadership in different ways and how that affects their later behaviour. In another project he is investigating the motivational effects of abusive supervision for employees based on cognitive misperceptions by employees. Finally, he is working on a study that investigates the role of employee mindfulness in monotonous jobs and potential consequences for performance.
