Call for Abstracts: AOM Symposium on Positive Relationships in the Workplace

  • 1.  Call for Abstracts: AOM Symposium on Positive Relationships in the Workplace

    Posted 15 days ago

    Dear Colleagues,

    We are putting together a presenter symposium on Positive Organizational Change, intended to submit to the 83rd Annual Meeting of the Academy of Management in Boston, MA August 3-8, 2023. We would appreciate the opportunity to consider your work for inclusion within that symposium. 

    The Positive Organizational Scholarship (POS) movement investigates the positive aspects of organizations, excellence, or positive "deviance" from the norm (Cameron, Dutton & Quinn, 2003; Cameron & Spreitzer, 2011). The movement that started about 20 years ago within the Academy of Management has produced a prolific body of work on various constructs on multiple levels of analysis, such as organizational strengths and virtuousness, individual well-being and positive interpersonal dynamics. Given the growing interest in positive aspects of management, especially in the context of major turbulences, and in line with the Annual Meeting theme of "Putting the Worker Front and Centre", we are interested in using a positive lens to examine aspects of organizational change. We are seeking work that examines positive change in regard to organizations on the individual, teams, and organizational level.

    If you are interested in having your work included in this symposium submission, please send a 250-500 word abstract to mgrabars@lakeheadu.ca and myadav@uwm.edu by December 5th, 2022. Abstract selection complete and notifications will be made by December 9th, 2022, when extended abstracts are due December 22nd, 2022.  Please note that the updated deadline for AOM final submissions is January 10th, 2023.
