Summary: "The role of business schools in developing future managers and leaders has long been scrutinised and critiqued. This has been exacerbated by the recent financial crisis and many books have been written that condemn business schools for producing leaders who graduate without the ability to respond to the changing world around them, innovate, or act in a responsible way. By way of remedy this provocative book takes the critique and debate further, proposing a number of ethical and spiritual resources including Heiggarian philosophy, classical Greek philosophy, and the Maori notion of wairua. It explores existing teaching practices and suggests ways that business schools can: encourage a greater understanding of different world views; introduce different perspectives such as the arts, philosophy and spirituality; encourage the practice of responsible and ethical leadership; and nurture innovation and creativity." -- Publisher's description
