Neil Walshe is an Assistant Professor at the University of San Francisco, California. His principle area of research is the role of virtue and morality in organizations, specifically the presence of courage and cowardice within organizational life. His work explores the psychological mechanisms and consequences of virtuous behaviour as part of expected occupational roles. By focusing on high-risk occupations such as ordnance disposal, private military contracting, and air traffic control, Neil attempts to develop greater insight into how workers construct and enact virtuous behaviour in the workplace.
This blog aims to provide readers with an alternative view on the role of courage in the workplace drawing on psychology and philosophy to explore the relevance of virtue in organizations and across occupations.
