  • Feria Internacional del Libro, Guadalajara, México.

    En el marco de la FIL Guadalajara, la Humanistic Management Network con ECOE ediciones estará lanzando el libro 'TENDENCIAS GERENCIALES. Gerencia Humanista Aplicada', en donde aparecen 12 casos exitosos de empresas a nivel global. Esta es la versión en español de nuestro libro "Humanistic Management in Practice" (Palgrave, 2010).  Este libro es la realización de los sueños de muchas personas, comenzando por los dueños, gerentes o grupos encargados de las empresas que aquí se presentan. Ellos querían— han logrado y están logrando— un mundo mejor. En ese sentido, se sentaron a pensar si era posible montar una empresa que se apartara radicalmente del enfoque tradicional de administración con base en “mandar y controlar”. Así, no solo cambiaron la imagen del “jefe” que solo está para hacer. Read More
  • Transforming Capitalism

    Capitalism has long had a bad reputation, and not only in the former communistic countries. The public discourse on continents such as Latin America and Africa has long been very critical of Anglo-Saxon style business. What is novel, however, is that with the new millennium, the discontent with capitalism seems to have become global. Even in Anglo-Saxon cultures, the former bastions of private property, free entrepreneurship and deregulated markets, shareholder capitalism has sparked widespread protests that unite such ideological foes as the tea party or the Occupy Wall Street movements.

  • Case Studies in Social Entrepreneurship

    This book is an essential resource for the increasing number of facilitators that wish to help students learn about the promise and pitfalls of social enterprise. The oikos-Ashoka case competition for social entrepreneurship was conceived in 2007 as a way to help find great material and case studies in this emerging field. This fourth collection of oikos case studies is based on the winning cases from the 2010 to 2014 annual case competitions. These cases have been highly praised because they provide excellent learning opportunities, tell engaging stories, deal with recent situations, include quotations from key actors, are thought-provoking and controversial, require decision-making, provide clear take-aways and are all supported by teaching guidance and comprehensive teaching notes available to faculty.

  • Humanistic Perspectives on International Business and Management

    The world is witnessing a number of severe crises including climate change, rise of international terrorism, social inequities, food shortage, material and spiritual poverty. Some argue that globalization has exacerbated these crises, while others argue globalization can be part of the solution. Globalization, understood as the cross-border integration of markets for products, labor, capital and knowledge, clearly is a force that has the potential to change the experience of human existence as well as its consequences for current and future ecosystems.

This two day event marks the closing block of the first time this course has been offered at the University of St. Gallen in Switzerland.

The theme of Impact Investing has gained substantial momentum in both, finance and social entrepreneurship communities over recent years. In addition student demand for course offers as well as supervision of theses on Impact Investing has risen steeply. For the two day closing session of this course we have organized a conference focused on the exchange with Impact Investing practitioners taking place in Zurich and St. Gallen. We will welcome speakers from the Values Based Investing offer of UBS, LGT's Venture Philantropy arm as well as Impact Investing Latin America, (IILA) from Sao Paulo, Brazil. We are much looking forward to discuss and reflect on our speakers' work as well as the work and outcomes of this course which was already succesfully held at the Global Ethic Institute in Tübingen, Germany in 2014.

A

mong the many false dichotomies fostered by the continuing debates surrounding higher education, one that I find especially disconcerting is that which pits the professional against the personal. While it is expressed in a variety of ways, it boils down to this: Either you believe the purpose of going to college is to be able to secure a (preferably high-paying) job, or you think there is something more intrinsically valuable to be gained from the years spent earning a degree. My question is: When did these become mutually exclusive?

The Australia and New Zealand Chapter (ANZ) of the Humanistic Management Network invites you to our April 2015 workshop co-hosted with the Leadership Lab at the University of Adelaide in South Australia.

The topic on April 1st 2015 is: "Community at Work: Come into my Life"

What does it mean to live fully?  Instead of have different parts of our lives quarantined as discreet domains, could we view our lives as a complex extended community?  Is it possible to achieve a level of social cohesion in organisations where organisational members are seen as full and legitimate participants in a social community growing from the business? 
 
In April we suggest you don’t have to leave your community at the door when you come to the office.  A community spirit built on equity and respect can transform interpersonal relationships and workplace experiences to be a source of strength and resilience for a fuller life journey.

You can find a summary of the event as well as the invitation to the event attached below.

The Australia and New Zealand Chapter (ANZ) of the Humanistic Management Network invites you to the March 2015 edition of its series of events co-hosted with the Leadership Lab at the University of Adelaide in South Australia.

The March event is based on the notion that the developed world is experiencing unprecedented levels of social connectivity with inevitable implications for business and society. The nexus between personal experience and business activities has been bridged by communication technologies, creating an often public barometer for human sentiment.

We will welcome Prof Alf Westelius from Linköping University, Sweden on March 2nd to share his unique view of people and organisations. Alf has been involved in Executive Education for more than 30 years, exploring areas such as organisational change, technology integration and social leadership in organisations.

You can find further information on the schedule and registration details in the Invitation attached below.
