Abstract: Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to demonstrate the influence of two different facets of pride – authentic and hubristic – on helping.
Design/methodology/approach – Hypotheses were tested combining an experimental vignette study (n=75) with correlational field research (n=184).
Findings – Results reveal that hubristic pride is associated with lower levels of intended helping compared with authentic pride when experimentally induced; further, trait hubristic pride is negatively related with helping, whereas trait authentic pride is positively related to helping, while controlling for alternative affective and cognitive explanations.
Research limitations/implications – The use of vignettes and self-reports limits the ecological validity of the results. But when considered in combination, results provide important indications on how helping can be fostered in organizations: by emphasizing successes and the efforts that were necessary to achieve them.
Originality/value – The results highlight the differential effects of discrete emotions in organizations.
