In this first episode, Reinventing Management the Responsible Way, Laasch discusses:
• What drove him to personally commit himself to the work around responsible management, conscious capitalism, business ethics, and sustainability.
• The role of the business school and how it can contribute to delivering societal change.
• His thoughts about the different accreditations, standards, and frameworks used and referred to within business schools and the value placed on them.
Going on, he addresses various trends and topics in teaching in Business & Management, including:
• How to help foster a global movement for responsible management that still allows for regional differences and identities.
• His experiences of teaching Business Ethics, Sustainability, and CSR as discrete courses and how to bring the people and planet pedagogy down the curriculum into teaching at an introductory level on principles of management courses.
• Finally, what resources he uses in his own teaching and what’s worked and been a success with his students.
