Leading Thinker Connects with Brisbane Leaders
AIM welcomed international speaker, best-selling author and leadership thinker, Margaret Wheatley, to Management House in July
Ms Wheatley was the special guest at a board room luncheon hosted by AIM Interim CEO Vivienne Anthon FAIM.
"It's an honour to be able to present first-rate thinkers like Margaret to Fellows of the Institute and business leaders," Ms Anthon said.
"The opportunity to host a conversation between Margaret and the Queensland business community is part of AIM's commitment to executive education and facilitating high level conversations and connections."
In the session, Margaret drew on ideas from many sources, beginning with the discoveries in new science that have profoundly shifted the worldview of many international thought leaders.
"To her science background, Margaret adds the perspectives and wisdom from many different disciplines, cultures and spiritual traditions. She is a prolific author and writes frequently for professional journals and industry magazines," Ms Anthon said.
The American Society for Training and Development (ASTD) honoured Ms Wheatley for "distinguished contribution to workplace learning and development" and dubbed her "a living legend" in 2003.
The society made special note of her interdisciplinary curiosity, "Meg Wheatley provides new insights into the nature of how people interact, and inspires us to build better organisations and better societies across the globe."
Her seminal text, Leadership and the New Science, through to her latest release, Perseverance, are consistently top sellers through www.managementbooks.com.au.
Ms Wheatley's Brisbane visit is part of the Institute's signature International Speaker Program, this year featuring organisational culture and innovation specialist Dr Stephen Lundin, generational change and technology prodigy Michael Furdyk, appreciative inquiry pioneer Jackie Stavros and leading adult educator Sharon Bowman.
