Wed, 2014-04-02 14:59

À l’occasion de la sortie de son pamphlet «Rééquilibrer la société», l’académicien de renommée mondiale Henry Mintzberg discutait au Cercle Universitaire de McGill, jeudi 27 mars, de sa conception des priorités sociales. La société, dit-il, est composée de trois piliers qu’il faut savoir équilibrer: le public, le privé, et ce qu’il appelle le pluriel, «la société civile». Ces trois piliers donnent lieu à trois types de besoins: les besoins individuels, communs et nationaux.

Rebalancing Society: Radical Renewal Beyond Left, Right and Center

Fri, 2014-03-14 13:07

“We have to leave behind the linear politics of left, right, and center, to understand that a balanced society, like a stable stool, has to rest on three solid legs: a public sector of political forces rooted in respected governments, a private sector of economic forces based on responsible businesses, and a plural sector of social forces manifested in robust communities.”

How Women Leaders Have Transformed Management

Fri, 2014-03-07 15:18

In a recent New York Times column, “How to Get a Job at Google,” Thomas Friedman interviews Laszlo Bock, the company’s senior vice president for people operations (which seems to be Google-speak for talent management). Bock notes that because constant innovation is increasingly a group endeavor, people who succeed in the company “tend to be those with a lot of soft skills: leadership, humility, collaboration, adaptability, and loving to learn and re-learn.”

Fri, 2014-02-28 14:34

Lili Hall (IMPM'13) came across the International Masters Program in Practicing Management (IMPM) by chance. She had considered MBA programs before, but the standard options seemed too formulaic. “Every time I looked at the curriculum, I’d get sad,” she says. As the founder and CEO of KNOCK, inc., a creative agency, Hall had already enjoyed a lot of professional success. She wasn’t looking to switch industries or climb the corporate ladder. “For me, it was very personal,” she explains. “I wanted to be challenged personally, and obviously professionally.”
