On Febrauray 4th 2016 the Australia and New Zealand Chapter of the Humanistic Management Network together with the Leadership Lab of the University of Adelaide invite you to the first workshop of this year titled: "Insight, Intuition and Advanced Knowledge: Innovation in the Workplace"
New ideas, dreams, ambitions and resolutions come into the minds of many of us as we begin each New Year so this is a great topic to start our discussions for 2016.
It feels empowering to have insights and be excited about new ideas which can overcome professional challenges. Professional inspirations and initiatives often come to us at this time because for many the New Year symbolises both new beginnings and opportunity for change. The question is, how can we cultivate this way of thinking at work so it becomes a continual reflective practice?
In February we’ll contemplate and discuss the what, how and why of inspiration, insight and intuition and how it contributes to advanced knowledge and well-being in the workplace. We’ll consider how people think about alternatives, what sparks them conceive new ideas and be motivated to share them.

Prior recipients include Henry Mintzberg, Roger Martin, Ed Freeman, Mary Gentile, Anil Gupta as well as organizations such as SEMCO, DM, OECD Better Life, and UN PRME.
We have compiled a paper containing a collection of eleven short Impact Investing scenario cases. The papers are researched and written by the participants of our Master's Level course on Impact Investing which took place in the Contextual Studies at the University of St. Gallen in the Spring Semester of 2015.
Investments aiming to generate a positive social and / or environmental impact as well as some financial return have become known as impact investments over recent years and have gained substantial momentum in both the finance and social entrepreneurship community.
In this course participants researched a suitable investment opportunity for an impact investor and then developed a structure for a fictitious investment. This investment structure was presented at length during the course and student teams also delivered short papers on their investment proposal which are compiled in this document.

This contribution to the magazine of London based Philanthropy Impact is focused on addressing poverty and inequality through business.
It opens with one of the cornerstones in the debate on distributional justice, that the moral development of a society can be measured by how it treats its weakest members thus arguing that poverty and inequality are indeed defining challenges of humanity. On these grounds the article continues outlining the hallmarks of a human centered management paradigm embracing the positive power of business to address poverty and inequality.
It concludes that it is an enormous privilege that we are given the opportunity to rid the world of extreme poverty and allow for everyone to live in dignity as a member of our global community. Let's make sure not to waste it.

A group of organizations and most importantly, of curios people, decided to look for new ways of organizational arrangement to interact and collectively seek solutions to the challenges of sustainability that we are currently facing within them. It was an invitation to participants to explore together important questions through dialogical methodology of the World Café. It was an experience to live how organizations can invent new organizational cultures that are aligned with the level of human development that we are dreaming—and seeing in some humanisticly managed corporations, and also toencourage new ways of working within more powerful, touching and meaningful organizational scenarios.#despertandoorganizaciones
