As a doctoral scholar at XLRI, one of India’s leading business schools (leading to degree FPM), I started my research journey. During the period, I worked full time and as a visiting faculty too.
During my coursework, I explored “Workplace Spirituality” and “Organizational Culture.” Later stage worked on “Calling and Karma Yoga” during a seminar paper. First research work under the faculty guidance.
In the thesis, I focused on “Calling and its interplay with work.”
In the whole journey, I have become more curious about the “Calling” and “Karma” and how it shapes us (human beings)? And does it deliver the “self-transcendence” that it promises? And How? On this broad canvas, more specific variables or concepts that I explored or getting curious are:
1. Calling and Careers (specifically Career Change)
2. Future Work Self.
3. Karma Yoga
4. Job Crafting
5. Leisure Crafting
8. Peak performance
Within the subject matter of “Organizational Behavior,” my interests are deepening and expanding more in the areas of “Positive Psychology” and “Indian Psychology”.
