Professors Pollack and Kirkman Explain the Role of Passion in the Workplace
In a recent study, Jeffrey Pollack, associate professor of entrepreneurship, and Bradley Kirkman, professor of leadership, looked at how a job aligns with other priorities and values, how specific roles fuel it, and overall sense of positive feelings.
“There’s the general opinion in the literature and in the lay public that being obsessed about something is really bad, and you don’t want it,” said Pollack. “Our research didn’t really bear that out as much as we might have thought that it would.”
