MIT and Columbia University faculties conduct corporate workshop in Delhi

Prof. Leigh Hafrey from MIT-Sloan School of Management, USA, along with Prof. Shubho Shekhar Bhattacharjee from Indian Institute of Planning and Management, conducted a day-long workshop on ethics and leadership in the Capital. CEOs, MDs and Directors of different companies attended the workshop.

The professors discussed issues on business ethics, leadership and corporate social responsibility illustrating both Indian and global perspectives. The workshop was made highly interactive with case studies and panel discussions. Hafrey said, "Ethics is guided by various socio-economic factors for a country like India. The parameters guiding ethics would be very different for that in developed economies like the US or Europe."

The second session began with workshop on innovation and creativity, which was conducted by Prof. Rajeev Kohli from GSB-Columbia University. It was based on various facets of creativity and innovation, which tried to highlight the essence of innovation in business growth. There was an exclusive session on yoga and relaxation technique for coordination of mind, soul and body in creative thinking.

Kohli said, "I am impressed with the Indian executives. We have generated a lot of innovative ideas during the course of the workshop." Corporate decision makers from various companies like Orient Fans, Monnet Ispat Ltd., Eli Lily, Effectsoft Limited, Modipon Fibres, Polaris Software, Hughes Software, TCS, DCM, BHEL, Satya Paul, Cox & Kings, National Fertilisers and Met Life Insurance attended the workshop.
