"What Is Wrong With You?": Culturally-Shaped Interpretations Of Professional Identity In International Organizations, 2022 University of Portland
"What Is Wrong With You?": Culturally-Shaped Interpretations Of Professional Identity In International Organizations, Valentina Maria Isabella Rathmann
Graduate Theses and Dissertations
This study argues that globalization is an organizational communication process, which embodies the constant tension between homogenization and uniqueness of cultures in the global business context. The tension of globalization emerges through intercultural communication processes between professionals with different symbolic understandings and taken-for-granted assumptions of what it means to be a professional and act professionally. In order to navigate these different understandings, professionals need to negotiate “boundary tensions” or different assumptions about the “right way” to be a professional. Extending the conversation on identity, this study argues that all the different fragments of identities interact in the discursive mediation and ...

Building Belonging, Jacob M. Ross
Master of Applied Positive Psychology (MAPP) Capstone Projects
This project comes from a deep love of the idea of creating cultures of belonging, originating from my own relationship with community, in which my life was saved by the loving generosity of the 12-step community. This connects to contemporary research on both the nature of, and need for, a sense of belonging to something bigger than oneself. This project begins with a review of current literature on the experience of belonging in the workplace, and the influence that feeling a sense of belonging within one’s organization has on well-being. It then goes into an exploration of current interventions ...

The Aspiring Entrepreneur Model For Flourishing - A Model Designed To Keep Aspiring Entrepreneurs Engaged, Committed, And Flourishing, Aaron Marcum
Master of Applied Positive Psychology (MAPP) Capstone Projects
The entrepreneurial experience is not for the faint of heart. Due to the stress associated with starting a new business, it can challenge the well-being of even the best intended entrepreneurs, especially those early on in their journey, whom I call aspiring entrepreneurs (AE). It is possible for an AE to flourish, where they thrive and continue to grow through the experience, as long as they invest in certain key well-being dimensions that positive psychology researchers and practitioners have identified as foundational to entrepreneurial flourishing. This paper explores three of these dimensions, (1) purpose in life, (2) autonomy, and (3 ...
