The Art (NOT Science) of Management–and Its Cousin Leadership

Tue, 2014-04-08 11:04

It seems that a number of people want to be scientists, or at least in the sense of ostensibly adding credibility to their respective field of work. Economists (of which I’ve been a practitioner since 1982) and those in the leadership field (yours truly since the early nineties) covet the science moniker. Adding the word “science” adds a certain cachet to one’s profession.

Surgery Not A Magic Cure For Obesity

Tue, 2014-04-08 10:59

It is alarming, but obesity has reached epidemic proportions in Kuwait. Oil has not only brought great wealth to the Gulf, but a huge change in lifestyle and food habits. Fast food, fast cars and everything else that money can buy has led to the rise of obesity so much so that today at least 88 percent of Kuwaitis are considered overweight.

Leading with Impact: Celebrating the 5th anniversary of the EMBA McGill-HEC Montréal

Tue, 2014-04-08 10:46

On March 21st, the McGill HEC Montreal EMBA program organised an event to celebrate its 5th anniversary. Participants from five alumni classes and the current class joined together for the first time as one group and discussed with an energy and openness you’d expect from people who have known each other for years.  The EMBA McGill-HEC Montréal was the common thread and common language which made that possible.  Fully 60% of the alumni took part in the day’s activities, confirming the strong link they feel to the program and the network it has created.

Hot Cities 2014: From Camping on the Gobi Desert to Touring the Gangnam Financial District

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.
