Kim Cameron is recognized as the foremost expert on positive relational energy, which is generated by virtuous actions and can have a profound impact on an organization’s success and an individual’s professional and personal life. Over the years, his research on organizational virtuousness and the development of “cultures of abundance” has been published in more than 140 academic articles and 15 scholarly books, and he was recently recognized as being among the top 10 scholars in the organizational sciences whose work has been most frequently downloaded from Google.
