Hello, and welcome to the Workplace Courage Acts Index survey site. We appreciate you taking the time to visit and hope you learn a bit about yourself and the world of work, while also contributing to scientific research. We are a group of academics in the Leadership and Organizational Behavior department of the Darden School of Business at the University of Virginia in Charlottesville, Virginia, USA.
We are trying to understand courage in the workplace. For millennia, courage has been discussed and debated by philosophers – usually in the battlefield context – but the lack of research in most work contexts, starting with significant cumulating of descriptive data, has left many interesting questions unanswered. What kind of act, for instance, is considered courageous? Why is a specific act considered courageous by some, but not by others? What organizational factors impact how much courage a behavior is seen to require?
By participating in this survey, you will be helping us begin to answer those questions and more. We, in return, will give you an immediate report that shows your responses and how they compare with all others who have participated.
