Convened by: Dr Clare Rigg, University of Liverpool Management School and Professor Peter Case, Bristol Business School, University of the West of England

Buddhism is an ancient oriental philosophy and religion which has begun to enjoy increasing currency and influence in the contemporary western world. It offers an alternative ethical basis for action and organizational relationships as well as for leadership identity and practice; one rooted in selflessness, compassion, non-harming and responsibility toward others. Many take this approach to be refreshing in an era dominated by western materialism and possessive individualism.

The focus of this seminar will be an exploration of the intersection between Buddhism’s influence on leadership theory, critical debate in business ethics and responsible organizational practice and what Buddhist principles and practices such as mindfulness offer to self-insight and self-care in leadership practice.

Speakers combine business owners, individuals consulting with companies and academics supporting leadership development.
