A research paper, co-authored by Tim Judge, has been recognized by a leadership journal as being one of the most influential throughout the past decade.

Judge, the Joseph A. Alutto Chair in Leadership Effectiveness at Fisher, co-wrote "The Bright and Dark Sides of Leader Traits: A Review and Theoretical Extension of the Leader Trait Paradigm."

The paper won The Leadership Quarterly’s Decennial Article Influence Award. According to the journal, the award winner is determined by its editorial team which votes on the top-5 most-cited papers published in 2009. The selection criterion concerns how influential the article has been on academia and the extent to which the article best reflects the editorial policy of the journal regarding methodological and theoretical rigor.

Judge, a leading researcher and author in industrial and organizational psychology, also serves as executive director of the Fisher Leadership Initiative.
