Dr. Thompson is an Assistant Professor of Leadership and Management Studies in the Department of Behavioral Sciences and Leadership. He received his Ph.D. in Business Administration (emphasis in Organizational Behavior) in 2012 from the Darla Moore School of Business at the University of South Carolina.

His teaching focuses on refining the cadets’ intellectual curiosity, critical thinking, and love of learning. He believes the classroom can be an environment conducive to providing a vibrant and intellectually stimulating atmosphere that affords psychological safety and a sense of purpose. His aim is to engage the cadets in a dialogue that causes them to think deeply about the subject matter, challenge themselves to exert uncommon effort, and gain valuable insights and practical solutions pertaining to the organizational context. He strives to connect with the cadets and present an interesting and cogent message to those preparing to become officers in the finest military in the world.

He has published research in Organizational Behavior and Human Decision Processes (forthcoming), American Psychological Association Handbook of Industrial and Organizational Psychology, and Academy of Management Best Paper Proceedings.

Prior to his doctoral studies, he was Deputy Director of Competitive Sourcing at Jupiter Corporation and Budget Analyst for United States Agency for International Development /Pal-Tech. Inc. He also studied at the University of Cambridge as part of an international study abroad program and was an active member of the Weber State University Honors Program. He has lived abroad twice—spending time in both England and Brazil. He is fluent in Portuguese. He and his sweet wife have three wonderful boys.
