Seminar

patrick-furu-480

Friday 12th September 1:00 pm, Concert hall Grand

Leading by jazz – Patrick Furu (PhD)

Learn leadership from improvising jazz bands. The jazz metaphor has been used widely in organisational behavior and leadership literature, as a novel way of thinking about organising and managing. It has been claimed that the organisation of the future resembles an improvised jazz band, as loose organizational structures enable new innovative ideas to be expressed and tested.

Leadership and jazz bands have a lot in common. If you can make your team, department or company work as a jazz band, at its best you can achieve extraordinarily great results. Patrick Furu works as an academic leader at Hanken School of Economics in Helsinki and SSE Executive Education. He has facilitated leadership workshops around the world from New York to Singapore, by using improvisation used by jazz bands to promote learning.

Tickets: 30€
(includes lunch  at 11:30 am and coffee starting at 2:30 pm)

The seats are limited so book early to avoid disappointment.
