Biography

Cornell University
Samuel Bacharach : Biography
Samuel Bacharach is the McKelvey-Grant Professor of Labor Management and is Director of ILR's New York City based Institute for Workplace Studies as well as the Director of the Smithers Institute. He is also the director of the New York City-based Master of Professional Studies. He received his BS in economics from NYU. His MS and Ph.D. from the University of Wisconsin.

Upon joining the Cornell faculty in 1974, he spent most of his time working on negotiation and organizational politics, publishing numerous articles and two volumes (Power and Politics in Organizations and Bargaining: Power, Tactics, and Outcome, both with Edward J. Lawler). In the 1980s he continued working on negotiation, but shifted emphasis to the study of complex organizations, with the empirical referent being schools. Besides his academic articles, he published a number of books on school management and leadership, such as Tangled Hierarchies (with Joseph Shedd) and Education Reform: Making Sense of It All.

In the late 1980s, Professor Bacharach took over the directorship of the Smithers Institute. In this role, he began working on a number of empirical studies such as: blue-collar workers in New York City, a study of New York City firefighters after 9/11, a study of transport workers in New York City, and a ten-year longitudinal study of retired workers. With his colleagues Peter Bamberger and William Sonnenstuhl he has published numerous articles on blue-collar workers, with emphasis on substance abuse in the workplace. His collaboration with Bamberger and Sonnenstuhl resulted in two books: Mutual Aid and Union Renewal: Cycles of Logics of Action and Member Assistance Programs: Labor's Role in the Prevention and Treatment of Substance Abuse.

For the last ten years, working in New York City, Professor Bacharach has focused on bridging theory and practice. Integrating his earlier work on politics, negotiation, and complex organizations into his studies of the workplace, he has re-examined the role of leadership. Working closely with practitioners from various fields, conducting workshops, training sessions, and open discussions, he has developed his own leadership perspective. This work culminated with the publication of Get Them on Your Side: Win Support, Convert Skeptics, and Get Results (2005) and Keep Them on Your Side: Leading and Managing for Momentum (2006). He has created a five-day leadership workshop and a series of online courses (with eCornell) based on this material.

Co-Founder
Current

In today’s environment of restructuring and downsizing, organizations promote people who both understand the business world and have the unique potential to excel in leadership roles. Often those same organizations struggle to give key talent the specific leadership and managerial skills they need to get projects off the ground, move ideas, rally people, invigorate agendas and create change. The BLG perspective, developed by Professor Samuel B. Bacharach over more than 30 years of academic research and real-world application, is based on the belief that while vision and charisma motivate and create a sense of direction, the final test of leadership is getting results. The most successful leaders are those who are pragmatic. The BLG Model specifically focuses on how to take a vision or a strategy from initiation to implementation. The BLG Model focuses on the pragmatic, nuts-and-bolts skills of getting things done. In partnership with your organization, Bacharach Leadership Group (BLG) delivers training that enhances the leadership and managerial skills of your high potentials. High potentials are those who think systematically, understand their functional roles and are capable of innovation. These talented individuals understand the organization’s strategic goals for customer service, operational excellence and innovation. BLG will give them the skills to execute and become the next generation of pragmatic leaders.
