Journal Article 1: Powell, G. N., & Foley, S. (1998). Something to Talk About: Romantic Relationships M Organizational Settings. Journal of Management24, 421–448.

Abstract: This article reviews the meager management and organizational behavior literature on romantic relationships in organizational settings. It demonstrates that workplace romance is a topic on which much theoretical and, more importantly, empirical research is needed. Workplace romances have important work-related implications for the two participants, coworkers, supervisors, and the organization as a whole which this article addresses.

Journal Article 2: Bochantin, J. E., & Cowan, R. L. (2014). Acting and Reacting Work/Life Accommodation and Blue-Collar Workers. International Journal of Business Communication.doi:10.1177/2329488414525457.

Abstract: The authors examine blue-collar employees’ experiences with work/life. More specifically, the strategies used by skilled and unskilled employees when making work/ life accommodation requests are uncovered and detailed. Using qualitative methods, the authors found that blue-collar employees use both proactive (circumvention, relating, factual appeals, and honesty) and reactive (ultimatums and other-focused appeals) strategies when seeking work/life accommodations.

Journal Article 3Frontiera, J. (2010). Leadership and organizational culture transformation in professional sport. Journal of leadership & organizational studies17, 71–86.

Abstract: Organizational culture has long been recognized as a critical component that can facilitate high performance in business. This qualitative study examines the phenomena of organizational culture change in professional sport (NBA, MLB, and NFL).  Six owners or general managers who had successfully brought their organizations through organizational culture change, as evidenced by their team’s performance, agreed to an in-person interview.  Five primary themes emerged (Symptoms of a Dysfunctional Culture, My Way, Walk the Talk, Embedding New Culture, and Our Way) which together formed an initial model for organizational culture change in professional sport: the Culture Change Cycle.
