    Happy summer break!

    Yesterday was the last BBA professors’ meeting of the 2018-2019 academic year. As I was walking to INSEEC U. I felt really privileged to have a job that allows me to share my passion of leadership with the American BBA students. I also felt very fortunate to be able to do it using innovative instructional strategies such as no desk learning space, flipped classroom, and reflective learning. We often hear and read that beyond technical...

    AI cost on our lives

    The existing and yet to be uncovered wonders of artificial intelligence may have left many of us with a bitter sweet impression after reading the research paper by researchers Emma Strubell, Aranya Ganesh, and Andrew McCallum from UMass Amherst (pre print research paper). Revealing that the process of training AI models to make sense of human language (take for example Amazon’s voice assistant Alexa or Google’s translator) has a colossal...

    Towards non-traditional leadership

    Did you know 67% of investors believe that traditional leadership is not for the future? For those of you starting new ventures and regularly pitching, it would not come as a surprise that almost 8 out of 10 investors view the leadership as critically important when deciding which companies or projects to invest in.

    Let your employees shine

    A while ago as I was browsing through Glassdoor, the online career community which identifies itself as a place helping people find a job and a company they love, I was quite surprised when reading company reviews, by the number of employees asking to be treated like adults. It seems that many companies still sustain a parent/child relationship with their employees, therefore missing out on the multiple benefits of regarding them as adult human beings....

    The eternal dance of seasons

    When wake the violets, Winter dies; When sprout the elm-buds, Spring is near; When lilacs blossom, Summer cries, ‘Bud, little roses! Spring is here!   says the famous poem by Oliver Wendell Holmes, Sr who was also an anatomy and physiology professor at Harvard Medical School in the 19th century. As we all know seasons are vital to the transition and evolution of our planet and some of us observe the procession of the seasons...

    Creativity and inclusion to pave a new path for tomorrow

    I was gifted with a voice to help people, create change for themselves and women as a whole.

This year’s theme is “Creative Women, Creative Economies”. It will certainly require a huge amount of creativity, solidarity, new thinking, cultural shift, societal transformation...

    Designing out waste not jobs!

    When sharing my ideas about circular economy being applied to human resources management*, one regular comment I often hear is related to the assumption that circular economy will exacerbate unemployment. And the following question is how it is expected to shape tomorrow’s workplace and transform the HR model we have always known if it cannot save jobs in the first place. And one cannot just brush off those concerns with a good mantra about...

    Teaching Circular Economy

    Teaching circular economy is certainly one of the things I love most in my portfolio career. Delivering a class on circular economy is both surprising and amazing:   Surprising because circular economy has been around for decades yet few people really know about what it is and what it is not. Amazing because it can only be an excitement to teach such a topic to the future generation of leaders and show them the enormous potential...
