Social Learning for Social IMPACT - based on pedagogy of the IMPM

|

Social Learning for Social Impact,

Prof. Breitner says the design of the course draws from past experiences in successful teaching innovation in two of the faculty's executive education programs – the International Masters for Health Leadership (where she serves as its international director) and the school's International Masters in Practicing Management, founded by Prof. Mintzberg.

Both mid-career executive programs feature a mix of online and in-class instruction, with the emphasis on promoting personal and class reflection, peer-to-peer interaction and opportunities for participants to connect theory and practice.

Learning from Experience and Evidence

|

Truly management education becomes significantly impactful when it draws on the lived experience of practicing managers. That is why we have a 50:50 rule in our classrooms (imhl.org for health care and impm.org for business managers): our mid-career participants, who sit at small round tables, spend half the class time discussing their concerns, sharing their experiences, and generally learning from each other. The other half is for us, as faculty, to maintain the balance by introducing broader evidence in our lectures and exercises. It thus becomes natural for the participants to carry this blend of experience with evidence back into their organizations.

«Il faut offrir à chacun la chance de réveiller ses talents latents»,Mintzberg

L.A. – Une étude de la firme de sondage Gallup abonde dans le même sens que vous. Elle a mis au jour cette année le fait que, chez nos voisins du Sud, seulement 35 % des managers se sentent engagés dans leur travail. Et que cela a un effet boule de neige sur les employés : ceux qui travaillent sous la gouverne d'un manager peu ou pas motivé sont 59 % plus à risque que les autres d'être eux-mêmes démotivés.

H.M. – Je ne connaissais pas cette étude, mais elle ne me surprend pas. Le mismanagement endommage clairement les équipes dans lesquelles il sévit. Il peut même les mener droit dans le mur. L'important, par conséquent, est de réagir dès lors qu'on décèle sa présence. Et le meilleur moyen de s'y prendre, c'est justement en misant sur les talents des uns et des autres.

L.A. – Comment ça ?

H.M. – Mes travaux de recherche m'ont amené à considérer que l'idéal pour éviter l'écueil du mismanagement, c'est de recourir au coaching entre pairs. Pourquoi par les pairs et pas autrement, me direz-vous ? La raison est triple : ça renforce le sens de la communauté, ça stimule l'échange de points de vue et ça favorise l'esprit d'équipe
