At the AOM Annual Meeting in Vancouver (2015), the PDW on “Psychological Foundations of Management: Core Self-Evaluation, Hubris and Humility” has met with success gathering more than 55 scholars from around the world. Building on this previous experience, the follow-up PDW proposal 2.0 aims to intensify research on how specific psychological heuristics might be associated with different sets of advantages or traps. In this vein, we ask: When does the “bright side” of hubristic CEO emerge? On the other hand, what is the “dark side” of CEO humility? In what ways do business owners and entrepreneurs’ core self- evaluations have some bearing on success and failure of new ventures? Answers to these questions are instrumental in shaping more effective strategic and entrepreneurial decision processes. In such a way, this PDW proposal intends to discuss the most relevant challenges we face in exploring the psychological foundations of management. Part 1 brings together an invited panel of outstanding scholars that are going to present their recent research. Part 2 features a set of roundtable interactions.
Pre-registration is required for this workshop. Additionally, participants to the roundtables are invited to submit the most recent version of their papers (or, alternatively, an extended abstract) that they would like to discuss.
