Shaping the Managerial Mind

What can leaders learn from today’s public health concerns and social justice issues? How can they use what they learn to shift their mindsets and perspectives to be better leaders in their organizations, both now and in the years to come?

We invite you to join us for the next virtual panel discussion in the Human Side of Management series, “Shaping the Managerial Mind” on Tuesday, October 20, from 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm PDT. Our panelists include CGU alumna Carol Geffner (PhD, SES, ’91), Drucker School Professor Jeremy Hunter, Doctor of Public Health candidate Nathan Kamel, and Drucker School alumna Ina Gonzalez Lankenau (MBA, ’08). Drucker School Interim Dean and Clinical Associate Professor Katharina Pick will moderate the discussion. Participants will have the opportunity to submit questions for our panelists when completing registration. Questions will be addressed as time allows.

About the series:

“Management is most and foremost about human beings.” This is more than just a quote from Peter Drucker. It is a deep-rooted belief that informs all that we do at the Drucker School of Management. In the context of today’s social justice and equity issues, our conviction about the value and purpose of all people and the role we each play in contributing to a functioning society has never been more relevant. This conviction was the impetus for the Human Side of Management series, important dialogues that explore the intersection of social equity and Drucker’s timeless principles.
