The next Annual Meeting of the Academy of Management will be held August 1-5, 2014 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The theme for the program is The Power of Words
About the theme from the Program Chair, Debra Shapiro.
The 2014 Theme encourages us to consider the effect of words – our words and others’ -- on individuals, teams, organizations nations or even global systems. Words -- in the broad way I am using the term here -- can take the form of spoken utterances, written text, or symbols (e.g., “thumbs-up” or “thumbs-down” to convey a message of approval versus disapproval, respectively; emoticons used in text-messages to convey emotions; graphs of growing or declining performance-outcomes).
