It’s just been brought to our attention that Dr. Diederik Stapel, one of the authors cited in
Sweet Hooligans, Honest Salespeople and the Influence of Stereotypes
is currently under investigation for producing fraudulent data. Because INFLUENCE AT WORK is scrupulous about providing information about which we can be confident, we can no longer stand behind the referenced article cited in the last Inside Influence Report. Consequently, we are formally withdrawing it from the IIR. We urge you not to use, rely on or cite the article or its conclusions. We will replace it with another article shortly.
We apologize for this misinformation. We’ll continue to look out for the best peer reviewed research available to provide us all with honest, accurate, and actionable results.
