Dr. Sunyoung Park, assistant professor in the School of Human Resource & Workforce Development (SLHRD), attended the 76th annual meeting of the Academy of Management (AOM) in Anaheim, California from August 5-August 10, 2016.

At the worldwide conference, Dr. Park presented both a research paper and a professional development workshop.

Dr. Park’s paper is titled “Organizational Culture, Cultural Intelligence, and Transformational Leadership: Performance Impacts,” and examines how organizational learning culture, cultural intelligence (CQ), and transformational leadership influence in-role job performance. The study’s findings indicated that organizational learning culture, CQ, and transformational leadership positively influenced employees’ job performance. In addition, organizational learning culture and CQ significantly affected transformational leadership.

Dr.  Park’s professional development workshop, titled “Making Learning Meaningful: Using Videos to Engage Students in Management Education,” was designed to provide educators with practical low-cost, high-impact visual teaching activities that demonstrate complex or abstract business concepts. The workshop highlighted presenters from a variety of institutions and numerous content areas including: personality, leadership, diversity, cultural intelligence, motivation, decision-making, labor relations, power, ethics, teamwork, and other areas.

The AOM is the preeminent professional association for management and organization scholars, and members include professors and doctoral students in the field, as well as academics and practitioners in related fields. Founded in 1936, the AOM global community today is nearly 20,000 strong and spans 115 countries.
