While the study of positive and negative affect has flourished in the past 25 years, greater attention to specific discrete emotions would broaden and enrich our understanding of organizational processes and outcomes. The proposed Professional Development Workshop (PDW) provides two unique and interactive ways for participants to interact with leading emotion scholars to learn about the benefits and challenges of discrete emotion research. The first is through an innovative fishbowl technique in which a small group of senior scholars will dialogue about pertinent topics related to studying discrete emotions while participants get to observe and experience a deep academic discourse. The second interactive element of the PDW takes place through facilitated table discussions on topics relevant to the study of discrete emotions. Few Academy of Management sessions to-date have dealt directly with discrete emotions. In response to the burgeoning research in this area, we bring leading emotion scholars together to demystify discrete emotions and support existing and aspiring emotion researchers alike in developing professionally as discrete emotion researchers, while building a microcommunity of discrete emotion researchers.
