10-23-18 Radical Transformational Leadership: What does this imply?
Guest Speaker: C. Suriyaprakash
Rehumanizing the Workplace
Join us for this radio show. You will hear Suriyaprakash, Professor of Organizational Development in Coimbatore, India. We will explore the notion of stewardship for transformational leadership. It’s foundation on the inner capacity of every individual and sourcing that potential rooted in universal values, gives us a refreshing perspective to all that we do. In the process, we do what we did, differently. It is not about engaging in new ideas or projects – it is about doing the same thing differently. New spaces open up.
We will hear what MBA students in business school do when they source their inner capacity and the core values they stand for. How can training programs be redesigned to include value-based transformational projects such that trainees can design and implement initiatives their workplace? Based on the principles in the book “Radical Transformational Leadership”, Suriyaprakash introduced a course on ‘Stewardship for
Responsible Business’ as a practicebased course for second year MBA students in entrepreneurship.
Working with varied sections of society– namely students, corporate managers, local grassroots community– we realize that the life issues people face are different. Yet there is one common challenge across the spectrum – to identify and get in touch with their (our) inner capacity to be more effective and manifest our full potential. Commercial success often leads to arrogance in corporate managers. This work brings humility without losing expertise, once they identify their inner capacity and the universal values they stand for.
How do we design our breakthrough initiatives, projects and ideas based on the conscious full-spectrum approach for enduring change? This work creates a level playing field for everyone to contribute, irrespective of which level of the organizational or societal pyramid one is in. How can we bring ethics to the center of business decision making? How can we rehumanize the workplace?
We will explore these ideas together.
