Soka University was founded in 1971 on the principles of a humanistic education and innovative approaches to learning.
One of the characteristics that distinguish Soka University is that it has been promoting international exchanges since its inception and now has one of the most active exchange programs in Japan. The university campus is located in Hachioji, a suburb of Tokyo.
For the fourth time since 2010 the Humanistic Management Center has the great pleasure to engage with a student and faculty delegation from Soka University, Tokyo, Japan during a workshop in August 2015.

At the shores of Lake Constance lies beautifully Lilienberg Unternehmerforum, a conferencing facility most suited for dialogue and reflection. Ethics First, the executive education joint venture of the Global Ethic Institute at the University of Tübingen and the Humanistic Management Center, is inviting to an afternoon event looking at the value of values for the SME sector in the region.
The region around Lake Constance and the bordering eastern part of Switzerland, western part of Austria and southern part of Germany have a long standing history of delivering entrepreneurial success stories. Simultaneously though these are challenging times for SMEs. They are on one hand hailed for being the backbone of our prosperity, but on the other hand face an ever more competitive environment, lower margins, difficulties in attracting and retaining the next generation of talented managers and market dynamics that reward short-termism over sustainable business practices.
The Australia and New Zealand Chapter (ANZ) of the Humanistic Management Network held our May 2015 workshop co-hosted with the Leadership Lab at the University of Adelaide in South Australia on the 7th of May 2015.
If you see a committee forming do you back away quietly or rush to the fore to be counted in for a say? We have committees for just about everything, most designed to bring in diverse opinions and generate informed discussion to matters that have collective impact. Why then are committees so often dysfunctional, or impotent or at worse acrimonious?
At the next HMN-LL event we explore committees and ask if playing hard and playing fair are mutually exclusive or if it is personal politics and hidden agendas that control who wins? We look at this issue through the lens of sports associations and ask why is it that often committees with recreational agendas have deep political problems and poor collective engagement. From our discussions and experiences with these groups we ask, what can we learn from this which can help our committees in business and community organisations?
In May we have the pleasure of welcoming the insights from the wonderful Dr Meera Verma, who has battled diverse committees, boards and executive panels for many years. An astute business woman, Meera was the winner of Zaffyre International Private & Corporate Sector Award in the 2006 Telstra Business Womens' Awards. In 2007 she won the Bioinnovation SA leadership award.

This two day event marks the closing block of the first time this course has been offered at the University of St. Gallen in Switzerland.
The theme of Impact Investing has gained substantial momentum in both, finance and social entrepreneurship communities over recent years. In addition student demand for course offers as well as supervision of theses on Impact Investing has risen steeply. For the two day closing session of this course we have organized a conference focused on the exchange with Impact Investing practitioners taking place in Zurich and St. Gallen. We will welcome speakers from the Values Based Investing offer of UBS, LGT's Venture Philantropy arm as well as Impact Investing Latin America, (IILA) from Sao Paulo, Brazil. We are much looking forward to discuss and reflect on our speakers' work as well as the work and outcomes of this course which was already succesfully held at the Global Ethic Institute in Tübingen, Germany in 2014.

mong the many false dichotomies fostered by the continuing debates surrounding higher education, one that I find especially disconcerting is that which pits the professional against the personal. While it is expressed in a variety of ways, it boils down to this: Either you believe the purpose of going to college is to be able to secure a (preferably high-paying) job, or you think there is something more intrinsically valuable to be gained from the years spent earning a degree. My question is: When did these become mutually exclusive?

The Australia and New Zealand Chapter (ANZ) of the Humanistic Management Network invites you to our April 2015 workshop co-hosted with the Leadership Lab at the University of Adelaide in South Australia.
The topic on April 1st 2015 is: "Community at Work: Come into my Life"
What does it mean to live fully? Instead of have different parts of our lives quarantined as discreet domains, could we view our lives as a complex extended community? Is it possible to achieve a level of social cohesion in organisations where organisational members are seen as full and legitimate participants in a social community growing from the business?
In April we suggest you don’t have to leave your community at the door when you come to the office. A community spirit built on equity and respect can transform interpersonal relationships and workplace experiences to be a source of strength and resilience for a fuller life journey.
