Making sense of whistle-blowing’s antecedents: Learning from research on identity and ethics programs 2009 47 Despite a significant increase in whistle-blowing practices in work organizations, we know little about what differentiates whistle-blowers from those who observe a wrongdoing but chose not to report it. In this review article, we first highlight the...

The stories that make us: Leaders’ origin stories and temporal identity work 2020 46 The stories we tell about our origins can shape how we think and act – helping us make sense of and communicate who we have “become” over time. To better understand the role that origin stories play in individuals’ work lives, we explore how 92 men a...
