    • Management

"Fixing Organisational Transformation: Functional Stupidity and the Perils of Leadership” - Leaders for Humanity with Mats Alvesson. Mats is researcher, writer, consultant and a critical thought leader focused on leadership and management. His research interests include critical theory, gender, power, management of professional service organizations, leadership, identity, organizational image and culture, symbolism, qualitative methods and philosophy of science. Recent books include Return to Meaning, Reflexive, The Stupidity Paradox, Managerial Lives and The Triumph of Emptiness. He is a Professor in Organisational Studies at Lund University School of Economics and Management, and Honorary professor at University of Queensland Business School, as well as visiting professor at Stockholm Business School. Co-hosted as always by: Antoinette Weibel and Otti Vogt

The Leaders for Humanity series is part of the #goodorganisations project (for further info see https://goodorganisations.com) and intends to offer a critical dialogue with "wise" thought and action leaders, related to key questions in the domain of individual, organisational and societal transformation. Its main intent is to develop critical thinking and deeper reflection by bringing together multiple perspectives - across philosophy, psychology, sociology, management science, complexity - in an open and collaborative inquiry.

During our interview we examine three critical questions: a) What is good? What is a good society? b) How can we craft good organisations? c) How can we as leaders or organisational citizens become good, and enable positive change?

We publish an exclusive set of recommended materials to the followers of the series prior to each episode. Please visit the Good Organisations LinkedIn page and https://goodorganisations.com/leadersforhumanity for more details. In addition, we publish opinion pieces and further reflections on our Medium page at https://medium.com/@goodorganisations.
