Change The Music: How To Turn An Organization Positive

Oct 12, 2015

The 100th session of the Positive Links Speaker series is being held at the University of Michigan Ross School of business.

 

Bob Quinn, one of the original co-founders of the Postive Links series (in 2002), says their original goal was to create a platform where their area of research could be accessible to the public in inspiring and practical ways.

Quinn suggests that behavior is the dance, the state of the leader is the music. Most managers try to change behavior by focusing on the behavior. They don't think to focus on the music that drives the dance, bottom line: It all starts with the moral condition of the leader.
  Quinn is the featured speaker for the 100th event and will speak about "Change the Music-Change the Dance:  How to Turn Organizations Positive."
 The event takes place Tuesday, October 13th at 4 p.m. at the Ross School of Business on the University of Michigan's campus.
