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
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.
