We hereby invite you to register for the sixth seminar of the 2017 series of seminars:

‘Yin and Yang’ of Organizational Leadership

Date:               Friday 14 July, 2017

Time:              09.00-15.00hrs.

Venue:            FHR School of Management  

Fee:               SRD 600 (reader with PP slides & reference articles, snacks and lunch).

Lecturer:       Mr. Hans Lim A Po



This seminar is about the characterization of organizations as simultaneously technical entities pursuing economic goals (‘means to an end’) and value-laden entities pursuing non-economic goals from their members and their role in society (‘an end in itself’). These two aspects are deeply intertwined and in continual tension with one another.


This seminar will:

  •   Address the operational interplay between the two roles of leadership;
  •  Elaborate on the task of leaders to ‘infuse values in organizations beyond the task at hand’ and to uphold both – meeting technical imperatives (‘efficiency and rationality’) while also protecting and promoting fidelity to its values (‘integrity and identity’);
  •  Conclude with a discussion of conditions for successful implementation of these processes of institutionalization and institutional work.
