   Host Keith Pannell talks with Lisa Finkelstein of the Northern Illinois University Department of Psychology, and her specialty is Industrial and Organizational (I/O) Psychology.  If you're at work, how does the presence of the people around you affect your behavior?  Do we behave differently around different people or groups?  I/O Psychology allows science to help build a better workplace by researching the methods that will help reduce stress and increase job satisfaction and productivity.
