Babson College will host OBTC 2008: Teaching Conference for Management Educators June 11-14, 2008, at Babson College, Wellesley, MA.
"Emerging trends in leadership development is a particularly relevant topic, given the looming US demographic crisis and the significant social impact that corporate leaders have in a global economy," Atkins said. "Since we develop leaders globally at Interaction Associates, we have the luxury of personal contact with many top business leaders. We are not only witnessing, but facilitating, an ongoing shift in business leaders' styles and core competencies."
Atkins will participate in a panel discussion on emerging trends in the future of management education Friday, June 13 from 4:15-5:30pm. Fellow panelists include Linda Arsenault, Blue Cross Blue Shield of Massachusetts, John Ferrie, Bose Corporation, and Larry Kaye, Fidelity Investments. James M. Hunt will moderate.
Atkins and the other panelists will explore promising needs and future trends of management education within business, and how this might impact what and how academic institutions teach in their executive programs. They will discuss the emergent leadership and management topics in executive development programs. They’ll look at what new skills executives are seeking out in new hires and experienced managers.
