Humble Inquiry & Career Transitions

IEDC & Online
20.06.2022 05:30 PM
Join us for an interesting event with eminent experts on the Organizational Development and Career Change. The event will cover two topics and will take place on Monday, June 20th between 17:30 and 19:30 in the IEDC-Bled School of Management.

Lecture on: Humble Inquiry and Humble Leadership
Edgar Schein, Professor Emeritus MIT Sloan School of Management, USA (on-line)
Peter Schein, Co-founder and COO of the Organizational Culture and Leadership Institute, USA
With a world in turmoil, the term VUCAA (volatility, uncertainty, complexity, ambiguity, and anxiety) is barely sufficient to capture how we are feeling and responding. Humble Inquiry and Humble Leadership are effective frameworks for leaders and managers seeking to process all that is happening.  Ed and Peter will touch on a historical perspective of our shared concept of organizations and place Humble Inquiry skills at the center of our effort to evolve how we lead complex social-technical systems.

Presentation: A Framework for Approaching Career Transitions
Jamie Schein, Assistant Dean and Director of Stanford Graduate School of Business, Career Management Center, USA
Professional managers often experience multiple transitions as they move on in their careers. A thoughtful transition can bring a manager closer to their career goals. Jamie will share a model for purposeful career transitions that she applies in her teaching practice. She is interested to discuss how the model resonates or differs with IEDC alumni and participants in their own careers and/or with the professionals they coach.
