Project Management Institute (PMI) is the world's leading not-for-profit professional membership association for the project, program and portfolio management profession. Founded in 1969, PMI delivers value for more than 2.9 million professionals working in nearly every country in the world through global advocacy, collaboration, education and research.

The Humanistic Management Center gladly accepted the invitation to present and discuss the foundations of a human centered management paradigm under the framing question of What Makes Organizations Great?. The main presupposition of this presentation is that the combination of democratic government and market economies has had a hugely liberating and prosperity generating effect in many parts of the world. Simultaneously however, we can increasingly observe the limitations of theories, policies and business practices that are based on the belief that market forces automatically and autonomously deliver desired results.

As a start, this posed an ethical dilemma regarding the animal treatment. However, after several phone conversations where we acknowledge their hard work to change their practices towards a more dignified ones, Carlos Largacha-Martinez went to give a presentation of how to apply humanistic management in their everyday practices, and how to use our beliefs within their decision making process.

Leadership is often associated with directives, control and authority but really how effective is the tough leadership approach? The challenge of how to be a good leader seems to be a perennial problem.

An increasing challenge has emerged as those being lead become increasingly diverse, in terms of professional skills, demographics and culture, generational attitudes and workplace expectations. The question is then, with leadership responsibility and management obligations isn’t it necessary to be clear, firm and decisive? Or not? What about soft leadership? This is the topic for May and we welcome our artist-intellectual extraordinaire Lisa Philip-Harbutt to share her thoughts on this compelling approach to leadership. Soft diplomacy stops conflict escalation more effectively than hard lines. Soft skills like emotional intelligence help bring empathy and creative solutions into the workplace. By ensuring considered communication, appropriate social etiquette and respectful inclusion soft leaders invite people to engage, share, learn and explore workplace challenges not just fix it. We look forward to your soft leadership experiences and challenges in May and to learning how different leaders manage to cultivate their soft side for team successes, enhanced productivity, workplace well-being and improved organisational resilience.
