Abstract

Professor Gretchen was the Distinguished Speaker for the Organization Development and Change (ODC) Division at the 2018 Academy of Management Meeting held in Chicago. In her address, she shared her latest thinking on co-working and thriving at work, and explored the implications for organization development and change. Following the presentation, we interviewed her about these topics and her broader contribution to the field of positive organizational scholarship. During our conversation, we discussed some of the formative influences on Professor Spreitzer's career direction and scholarship. Then, we explored her enduring commitment to researching and promoting a positive orientation towards organizations and organizational life. Finally, we concluded by eliciting her ideas on the future of work and the concomitant implications for organization development and change.
