Research Paper Breakout
New talks are added to this page daily, as they are linked in the plenary page. Keep checking back!
In the research paper break out session, attendees learn about the results of a qualitative and/or quantitative research study related to the research agendas of the Research Centers, Research Fellowship funded projects, grant-funded projects supported by the Office of Scholarship Support, or campus-based research. Each research paper breakout sessions provide attendees an opportunity to learn about 2-4 research studies in a similar area, being conducted at UOPX and/or by your UOPX peers. Join us to hear their methods, learn about new findings, and discuss what this means for the fields, next steps, and practice.
Financial scandals from companies such as Enron, Tyco, Arthur Anderson, WorldCom, MCI, and AIG often are linked to leaders who might have sent ethically misleading signals to employees in these institutions. To explore the role senior leadership plays in emitting ethically misleading signals, the purpose of this research is to investigate to what extent do senior leaders formulate, enforce, communicate and evaluate ethical policies and guidelines in organizations.
The purpose of the research proposal will be to determine whether a correlation exists between the leadership style of an organization, and the effectiveness of digital transformation within the organization.
This presentation explores the concept of moral leadership and the potential for conflict with organizational innovation. After exploring the organizational prioritization of profitability with the exclusion of moral and ethical implications, the presentation asserts that moral leadership need not be the center of conflict with organizational innovation. Instead, research reveals that moral leadership can serve to enhance, inspire, and provide the foundation needed for innovation.
When High Reliability Organization (HRO) first responders are called into action, they are facing life or death situations not only for themselves, but for their co-workers, and the public at large. In this heuristic inquiry, a Navy Seal examines 20 first responders' thoughts and stories about what occurs within them psychologically and physically at the moment of decision. What happens in that moment of mindfulness is both intriguing and surprising.
American workers working in higher risk professions are experiencing higher levels of stress (Ashton, 2010). As a result, this environment is susceptible to higher rates of employee turnover and especially increased instances of workplace violence. As a result, managers are continuously searching for answers to combat employee turnover and workplace violence, while formulating huge strides to raise the level of retention within their organizations. This workshop will present the findings of my study, which explored workplace violence and turnover within high-risk professions.
Bullying behaviors in the workplace are marked by repeated events of intimidation that creates a pattern of humiliation and fear in the victim. School staff are not immune to this behavior. Although studies have been conducted on student to student bullying behavior, little research has been done concerning adult to adult bullying in the educational workplace.
This heuristic inquiry was an exploration of the mindful awareness of internal and external influences on the actions of leaders in High Reliability Organizations (HRO) when faced with dangerous situations so physical and psychological harm can be averted. HRO leaders require a discriminatory mindfulness to subtle danger signals and cues in complex, high-risk systems to sustain safe and reliable performance (Weick & Sutcliffe, 2007). In 2013, even with mindful principles in
