To Angelo Camillo: In my Org. Behavior class, I have the students break up into teams, choose a TED Talk on Leadership or Mgmt., & design a power point presentation to present to the class.  They are also required to strategize as to how they would implement the message of the TED Talk into an organization.  Hope this helps your request!

Accordingly, a growing body of research explores the effects of entrepreneurial passion on enterprising individuals.

MSR / Europe

Greetings: The MSR / Europe regional network launched at a Zoom session on Wednesday, March 6, 2019. At that session, a key "take-away" had to do with interest in participating together in a European conference. This is both ironic and instructive. Ironic because the purpose of the session was to establish a regional network on Management, Spirituality, and Religion in Europe, but formally as part of the Academy of Management. The AOM conference is based in the U.S.: ironic! But it is also instructive of regional participants quickly expressing an organic interest in regionally-based opportunities to actually get together.  Two conferences were mentioned: EGOS ...

How To Implement Effective Pre-Employment Screening One of the toughest aspects of a business is that you can’t simply go back in time and apply all of the knowledge that you learn while running a business. While it might be tempting to look back and examine your mistakes, the truth is that business owners have to constantly be focused on the future, whether it involves improving the bottom line, expanding strategically, or staying ahead of the competition. One of the most important ways that a business can improve in terms of productivity is to hire more effectively. No business wants to constantly be rehiring and replacing employees because of their ...
