    The cover image juxtaposes the natural environment with the built and indus-

    trially utilitarian environment. It also provides an analogy to environmental

    sustainability as a budding topic in industrial-organizational psychology.

    The critical role that I-O psychology has in the area of environmental sus-

    tainability will be explored in the 2012 Leading Edge Consortium:

    Environmental Sustainability at Work: Advancing Research, Enhancing

    Practice. The conference will be held October 1920 in New Orleans. Go to for more information and to register.

    Summertime and the Livin Is Easy

    Lisa Steelman

    Florida Tech

    Many of us view summer as the time to slow down, relax, and breathe a

    little. Not so at SIOP! This issue of TIP is packed full of information, activi-ty, and news from the members that make SIOP the premier professional

    organization for I-O psychologists all over the world.

    We have an article by Stan Silverman, Russell Johnson, Nicole

    McConnell, and Alison Carr discussing their program of research on leader-

    ship arrogance. They provide information on the impact of arrogance in top

    leaders and how to assess and address leadership arrogance. Elizabeth Cul-

    hane, Patrice Reid, Loring Crepeau and Daniel McDonald discuss cross-cul-

    tural competence in the U.S. military. They share how the military is current-

    ly defining cross-cultural competence and some of the initiatives under way to

    ensure our military are mission ready to work in cultural contexts other than

    their own. Andrea Castiello dAntonio discusses his view on the nature of

    the validity of unstructured interviews and George Yancey and Xuan Wang

    share the results of their study on the use of selection procedures by human

    resource executives with different backgrounds and training. For those of you

    suffering from summertime writers block, Nathan Bowling has contributed

    some advice for putting words on paperor onto your computer screen.

    The SIOP volunteers and executive board are also hard at work this summer,

    as they are throughout the year. You can read about many
