Organization: Vernon Press
Event: Call for chapter proposals in “Selflessness in Business”
Submission Deadline: January 31, 2018
Description: Vernon Press invites chapter proposals on Selflessness in Business. The volume will be edited by Dr. Dominika Ochnik, Katowice School of Economics, Poland. We invite submissions that explore the selflessness in relations with business and psychology of work. Selflessness is understood from a social perspective as related to self-transcendence (Levenson et al., 2005; Frankl, 2000) and connectedness to others (Dambrun, 2017). This perspective can be helpful in deeper understanding of pro-social behaviors in organizations and its implications (Bolino & Grant, 2016). The manifestations of this approach can be find in acts such as sharing information for a common goal, shared economy, cooperation, team work, or pro-social vocational preferences. What we aim for is to reveal individual, organizational and social benefits and costs of selfless actions in business and work environment and to explore its practical applications.
Eligibility: Please submit one-page proposals including an annotated summary, a short biographical note and (if available) a list of similar titles. For further questions or to submit your proposal, you can write to: [email protected] or [email protected]. A paper that has been published previously may not be included.
