Kim Cameron is one of the world’s foremost researchers and thinkers in the area of organizational culture and positive leadership. He is a Professor Emeritus of Management and Organization at the University of Michigan, where he co-founded the Center for Positive Organizations.
Recently, we sat down with Cameron to ask him how his research could inform the current moment. (This interview was recorded prior to the death of George Floyd.) Cameron’s response was compelling, covering everything from the unexpected impacts of downsizing to the practice of gratitude.
