|Kenny Moore, former monk and present-day
business executive, discussed the changing role of leadership in a turbulent
and unforgiving business environment. This interactive, insightful and
entertaining session focused on organizational theory, case studies and
various H.R. interventions in a NYC Fortune 500 company.
The program addressed the following business
• The surprising fact that leaders who
can manage to “close their mouths and listen” have a better chance of being
heard, believed and followed
• Getting out of the way and letting employees
use their God-given talents makes them want to stay and contribute to the
bottom-line; rekindling the lost art of “intrinsic” motivation can be fun,
• “Managing” change is a self-contradiction,
perpetuating the false belief that we could be in charge of making someone
else actually change;
• Inexpensive and rewarding (personally,
professionally and commercially); losing your soul to maximize shareholder
return hurts the business and prolongs your stay in Purgatory.
