‘A Declaration of our INTERdependence’ Speaker: Henry Mintzberg, PhD, OC, OQ, Chair of the Faculty of Management Studies, McGill University, ‘Global Thinker’
Henry Mintzberg in brief
I am a writer and educator, mostly about managing originations, developing managers, and rebalancing societies (my current focus). I sit in the Cleghorn Chair of Management Studies at the Desautels Faculty of Management of McGill University in Montreal
I have authored 20 books, including Simply Managing and Bedtime Stories for Managers, which have earned me 21 honorary degrees. I co-founded the International Masters Program for Managers (impm.org, also imhl.org in health care), as well as a venture CoachingOurselves.com, all novel initiatives for managers to learn together from their own experience, the last in their own workplace.
I may spend my professional life dealing with organizations, but I spend my private life escaping from them—mostly in a canoe, up mountains, and on a bicycle. (See further details on mintzberg.org, including my blog.)
