How theatre can inform entrepreneurs

Mon, 2017-05-29 09:26

In a recent piece for Forbes, Professor Karl Moore details three leadership lessons from the theatre world that entrepreneurs can take to heart.

He discusses Stanislavski’s internalization technique as a starting point for the concept that an introverted leader can draw on past experiences of feeling powerful to take on an extroverted stance. Actors also undergo training in understanding characters and emotional intelligence that can be helpful in negotiations.

Desautels Professor Karl Moore recently appeared on Global News to talk about the difference between introverts, extroverts, and ambiverts.

McGill-HEC Montréal EMBA offers yearly aboriginal scholarship

Mon, 2017-05-29 09:17

Every year, the McGill-HEC Montréal EMBA program offers a $50,000 scholarship for aboriginal managers. The first recipient of the scholarship was Mi’kmaq urban councillor Manon Jeanotte in 2014. Her EMBA experience prompted her to make a successful run for chief of the Gespeng Mik’maq Nation in 2015.

Kativik School Board director Jason Annahatak will graduate from the EMBA next February, and calls the EMBA a good fit for aboriginal leaders because it gets them networking with a wide range of influencers.
