Part Five: Creating Passionate Hearts

The search for work passion starts with educating our future business leaders to love what they do. Today we conclude our series on work passion with a piece from the Journal of Management Education. Fahri Karakas of Norwich Business School published “Positive Management Education: Creating Creative Minds, Passionate Hearts, and Kindred Spirits” in the April 2011 issue of JME. The abstract:

The goal of this article is to explore positive management education, a practice-based teaching and learning model centered on positive organizational scholarship. Six signs of transformation in organizations are presented: complexity, community, creativity, spirituality, flexibility, and positivity. A model for positive management education is introduced, based on six related JME(D)_72ppiRGB_150pixwdimensions: fostering integrative and holistic thinking, building a sense of community through high-quality relationships, developing creative brainstorming and skill building through innovative projects, integrating spirituality into the classroom, fostering flexibility and empowerment, and designing positive enabling, nurturing learning platforms. This positive management education model is illustrated through selected best practices from a pilot study of an experiential organizational behavior course.
