Associate Professor Gianpiero Petriglieri and Assistant Professor Jennifer Petriglieri at INSEAD Business School explore in a new report the problem that business schools’ education in general dehumanizing leadership. According to the Professors this; “… serves as a valuable defense against, but as poor preparation for, the ambiguity and precariousness of leadership in contemporary workplaces.” It is obviously a relic of the 20th Century mass-market-society where the general conclusion is that business schools needs update and transform. In this spirit the report explores the prospects of humanizing leadership education. This e.g. would include “revisiting not just theories and teaching methods but also our identities as scholars and instructors.” Source: INSEAD Working Paper series, the report: Can Business Schools Humanize Leadership?
