  • A World Ethos for Global Business?

    The 5th Annual Humanistic Management Conference  A World Ethos for Global Business? Cosmopolitan Responsibilities of Management 05 - 06 October 2017 Weltethos-Institut, University of Tuebingen We have a world economy but no world government; nor can we expect, at least in the foreseeable future, a system of decentralized global governance with sufficient sanctioning powers to enforce legal mandates for business worldwide. For this reason alone, the ethical dimension of business cannot be entrusted solely to the law. Globalized markets would seem to require an underlying ‘ethos’, present to some degree the world over: a common spirit of legitimate, just, and fair business practice substantiated by shared experience. As managers and economic decision-makers, however, are increasingly operating within multi-cultural settings with divergent social customs and conventions, no ‘one size fits all’ approach will do. While on the one hand the growing need for transnational cooperation accentuates the call for a shared ‘world ethos’ for the global business community, on the other hand any proposal in that direction must make room for the need for the diversity and divergence of culture and civilization. At the fifth annual Humanistic Management Conference, to be held at the University of Tuebingen’s Weltethos-Institut, we aim to address this dual need by investigating from various cultural perspectives: 1) how a world ethos for global business  could be variously articulated and promoted (‘theory’); 2)  the extent to which such an ethos is already present in contemporary globalized business (‘practice’); and 3) what civil society around the world can do to support the efforts of  (esp. multinational) corporations in this direction (‚policy’).

This month the Australia and New Zealand Chapter of the Humanistic Management Network together with the Leadership Lab of the University of Adelaide invite you to discuss the idea of heedfulness, in juxtaposition to last months conversation about mindfulness.  This workshop will take place on the 12th of November 2015.

There is currently a strong ground-swell of interest in and research about mindfulness – so what, order then, is the value of looking at the synonymous ‘heedful’ and ‘heedfulness’? The principal driver behind the adoption of the word and concept of heedfulness is a shift from looking inward and situating oneself very much and mindfully in the immediate context of being ‘where you are’ and ‘in the world’ to investing that same level of paying attention on purpose to others, what they are doing, and how you and they are inter-related.
