Since the 1980s we have heard much about ‘leadership’; its impact on organizations and being a valued and rare quality.

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.

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.
