    Trust, Authentic Pride, and Moral Reasoning: A Unified Framework of Relational Governance and Emotional Self‐Regulation.Martin Spraggon & Virginia Bodolica - 2015 - Business Ethics: A European Review 24 (3):297-314.
    This conceptual article introduces behavioral perspectives into the governance arena and undertakes a psychological assessment of managerial decision making in organizations by elaborating on the treatment of trust and pride in the extant literature. While trust is conceived by governance scholars as a device for monitoring relationships with others, we argue that authentic pride, contrary to hubris, could operate as an attribute of emotional self-regulation allowing corporate leaders to govern the social behavior of their own self.

    The main purpose of this article is to elucidate the bright connotation of the self-conscious emotion of pride, namely authentic pride, in the broader context of behavioral governance literature.
