    ​Greetings to all from Europe,

    In 2016, a thematic research group of the French academic Association of Human Resource Management (AGRH) was established to promote research in the field of Management and Spirituality.

    Friday, June 28th and Saturday, June 29th 2019 the University Paul-Valéry - Montpellier 3 with the support of the AGRH, is organizing a two-day research colloquium on the theme "Spirituality, Development, Transformation" at the University Paul-Valéry - Montpellier 3.

    Spirituality is an attractor bringing academics and professionals in search of meaning to rethink their perspectives and productions. Workplace Spirituality is considered "the recognition that people have an inner life that nourishes and is nourished by meaningful work that takes place in a context of community..." (Ashmos & Duchon, 2000: 137). Spirituality is a relational ideopraxis centered on a spiritual presence that unifies; enables to find harmony through the integration of the different aspects of oneself; orients by allowing to create meaning, to find one's place, what one is called to in life; and to connect with ultimate concerns, values and meaning (Tackney & al. 2017); mobilizes all aspects of life thus enabling self-realization, one's aspirations and potential, with intensity and joy (Duyck & al 2017).

    Literature has steadily developed in this area (Cash & Gray, 2000; Giacalone & Jurkiewicz, 2003; Giacalone & Jurkiewicz, 2004; Karakas, 2009; Benefiel & al., 2014; Tischler & Al, 2007) showing that Spirituality is likely to influence areas as diverse as consumer behavior and experience (Moal-Ulvoas, 2014; Poulain & al., 2013), to increase well-being at work and performance in business (Duyck & Mhenaoui, 2013) and to inspire new forms of leadership (Pauchant, 2005; Voynnet Fourboul, 2012; Plane, 2015). The scope of literature on Workplace Spirituality covers different aspects of management research: organizational theory, leadership, human resources management, marketing, ethics and governance.

    In this context, we invite you to work comprehensively as well as critically on the question of personal and organizational development and transformation in management situations. How can the consideration of "spirituality management" in processes promote the development and transformation of individuals and organizations, and/or conversely constitute a limit or even an impediment to this dual transformation? In today's world, questions on individuals' and organizations' development as well as their transformation call for a number of questions.
