Resourcing Personal Stories of Crisis and Challenge in Organizational Context
In this incubator session, Eunbit will share her on-going research project where she is examining to what extent people share their personal experience of dealing with crisis and challenge with the members of their work group and organization and how that sharing impacts group’s psychological resources and relational dynamic. The project is currently in the data collection stage through (1) survey from people currently working in a variety of organizations (about N=600) and (2) in-depth interviews with the executives. Preliminary analysis of these data will be presented.
Eun Bit Hwang is a doctoral student in Management and Organizations at the University of Michigan’s Ross School of Business. Her research interest concerns whether and how an individual’s internal powerful experience can become a resource for a group. With this question in mind, she is currently examining to what extent people share their personal experience of dealing with crisis and challenge with the members of their work group and how that sharing impacts group’s psychological resources and relational dynamic. Eun Bit received her BA in Economics from Dartmouth College and her MA in Applied Positive Psychology from University of Pennsylvania.
Research is the heart of Positive Organizational Scholarship (POS), and we want to make sure that we support each other in developing high quality research. To that end, we created the Adderley Positive Research Incubator for sharing and encouraging POS-related research ideas that are at various stages of development.
