The Unintended Moral Consequences of Passion, Proactivity, and Information Sharing

    Management scholars routinely advocate for passion, proactivity, and information sharing as ways to increase individual, team, and organizational performance. In this symposium, we gather leading and emerging researchers in the field of behavioral business ethics to consider the moral implications of these practices and recommendations. We contend that management scholars have advocated for these without fully considering their “moral costs.” In a series of papers, we demonstrate that passion, proactivity, and information sharing can have unexpected – and unintended – moral consequences. We explore the influence of these practices and recommendations on moral perceptions and moral decisions, and we consider the consequences of such for individuals, organizations, and societies. Taken together, our papers extend the emerging literature on the systematic side effects of traditional management practices and processes and offer important theoretical and empirical insights into moral decision making in organizations.
