Mintzberg On Why You Need To View A Company As 'A Community Of Human Beings'

Fri, 2014-04-11 16:18

“I’m a human being, not a human resource”. Is something I have heard my colleague Henry Mintzberg say a number of times. It really seems to resonate with people. Recently Henry published on his website an e-pamphlet called Rebalancing Society. In it he argues that society rests on three key pillars: government, business and what he calls plural society. Henry believes that business today in the West has too much power and we need more of the plural society.

Reflections from South Korea

Fri, 2014-04-11 16:15

Recently, I visited South Korea and Mongolia along with a group of McGill University undergraduates and alumni. This trip was part of the Hot Cities of the World Tour organized by Professor Karl Moore of the Desautels Faculty of Management at McGill University. Frankly, South Korea was an incredible place to visit; especially from an economic perspective. South Korea is the world's 12th largest economy, as well as a global leader in the manufacture of automobiles and electronics. Despite these successes however, South Korea's economy does face key issues.

Thu, 2014-04-03 16:50

If a year ago someone told me I’d be spending my spring break camping in the Gobi desert, 30 degrees below zero, I probably wouldn’t believe them. Yet “expect the unexpected” seems to be the tagline for the week we experienced during the sixth edition of the Hot Cities of the World Tour, led by Professor Karl Moore.

How Do Introverted Leaders Succeed? By Earning Respect

Mon, 2014-03-24 16:59

Introverted leaders. Five years ago you didn’t hear much about them. Particularly since Susan Cain’s excellent book Quiet (see my review below), they have been getting much more attention. But introverted leaders have been around a long time – Moses in the Old Testament appears to have been one. In this post I talk to the former CEO of the Montreal Canadiens hockey team about one of this storied team’s best captains, Saku Koivu, a great introverted leader.

Darren Entwistle to Step Aside as Telus CEO, President But Remain as Executive Chairman

Wed, 2014-04-02 15:01

Darren Entwistle (MBA'88) is stepping down as chief executive of Telus, but his influence in running the company he built from a regional telephone service into a $25-billion national wireless player will remain.

... McGill University professor Karl Moore said most CEOs leave after six to 10 years and don’t stick around as long as Entwistle.

“It may be a little long, but I wouldn’t be too critical of it because of the kind of change he has brought to Telus in the time that he has been there and been in charge,” he said.
