Developing leadership: questions business schools don't ask

Mabey, Chris and Mayrhofer, Wolfgang (2015) Developing leadership: questions business schools don't ask. SAGE, London. ISBN 9781446296103. [Book] (doi:10.4135/9781473919983)


A string of high profile scandals suggest something of a moral meltdown at leadership level in organizations across all sectors. Why are business schools frequently failing in their mission to be capitalism’s conscience and to provoke deeper self- and other-awareness among their students?
This book takes this up critique in three ways. It lays bare more precisely the moribund theories and amoral assumptions underlying much of what business schools teach. By way of remedy it proposes a number of ethical and spiritual resources including Heideggarian philosophy, MacIntyre’s virtue, classical Greek philosophy, Hebrew wisdom tradition, Christian spirituality and the Maori notion of wairua. Third, it considers not just what and why we teach in business schools, but how, by offering a range of innovative classroom approaches
