    Abstract

    This article contributes to the growing acknowledgement and scholarly exploration of the emotional and spiritual dimensions of work and career. Presenting a theoretical framework which links emotion and career through narrative, the article examines loss of affective organisational commitment using the metaphor of loss of faith, through analysis of a case study based upon an autoethnographic account. The case study illustrates the use of narrative as a coping strategy, and confirms the appropriateness of the loss of faith metaphor.
