Respect at Work
Organizational research indicates that members strongly desire respect - the worth accorded to one person by one or more others - but rarely report adequately receiving it. In this webinar I will discuss conceptual and empirical research indicating that respect is given and received in two distinct ways - one of which is a type of respect freely accorded to all individuals in a given group or context, and another type that is earned by individuals for valued attributes and achievements. I will discuss the interplay between these two types of respect, as well as the impact that receiving respect has on the ways that individuals see themselves and experience organizations. Finally, I will share findings from a qualitative study of incarcerated women who experienced respect as a catalyst for a positive identity transformation.
Kristie Rogers (PhD, Arizona State University) is an Assistant Professor of Management at Marquette University. Her research focuses on the topics of respect, identity, and stigma. Current and past research projects span unique contexts such as a prison, the Army’s Special Forces, a large technology company, a small microbrewery, and a group of female directors of publicly traded firms.
A key stream of Kristie’s research focuses on the relationship between respect and identity. A conceptual paper details the two key types of respect in organizations (in press at Journal of Management) and an empirical paper explores the role of respect in identity transformation among female inmates (accepted for publication at Administrative Science Quarterly). Her research is also published in outlets such as Academy of Management Review, Organization Science, and the recent Handbook of Innovative Qualitative Research Methods.
Kristie’s teaching experience includes undergraduate and graduate courses in organizational behavior, negotiations, and creativity and innovation. She also enjoys partnering with organizations to understand and address problems through interview-based research.
