Minding Our Teaching Practice Using Peter Vaill’s Conjectures
We concentrate on preparing our learners to be effectively practicing managerial leaders in these times of turbulence and destabilizing institutional change. Yet, what about ourselves? We are being tossed about in the same “Permanent White Water” that Peter Vaill famously predicted for managers nearly forty years ago. This workshop turns our attention to our own OB teaching practice - our chosen way of being in this world. Vaill generated 32 conjectures on the universal nature of Practice. They are used in this workshop to understand better and appreciate the practice that keeps us teaching regardless of complex conditions and challenges.
