Local Business Leaders Invited to Reinhardt University on October 5 for “Ancient Wisdom for Modern Management,” a lecture by Dr. Vasant Joshi

Dr. Vasant JoshiLocal business leaders are invited to Reinhardt University for “Ancient Wisdom for Modern Management,” a lecture by Dr. Vasant Joshi on Tuesday, October 5, at 2 p.m. on the top floor of the Hill Freeman Library and Spruill Learning Center on the University’s campus in Waleska, Ga. 

Are you questioning the same paradigms of efficiency, goal achievement, control and analysis, hierarchy for finding more human and wisdom oriented strategies like all those who carry a heavy workload are? The talk from Dr. Joshi aims at exploring how we can face challenges with a greater sense of focused awareness, response-ability, and a willingness to change with positive effort.

Wholistic and Unique Vision

“Joshi’s international educational and living experience gives him a wholistic and unique vision,” said Dr. Kathy Hyatt, assistant professor of business. “As a spiritual seeker, he is also able to see and understand the challenges and prospects of how one may relate with an open and aware perspective.

“The talk may help the listener create a fundamental understanding about ‘ethics’ – not in terms of what to do, or what not to do, but in the sense of how to be and how not to be,” continued Hyatt. “More specifically, it will help participants gain a sense of how an individual within a managerial framework can contribute in developing spiritual culture in a corporate environment.”

The speaker and lecture is sponsored by the Knox Foundation and Reinhardt’s McCamish School of Business to promote business ethics on campus.

Joshi Background

Dr. Joshi holds a PH.D. from the University of Michigan and a M.A., Ph.D. from M.S. University of Baroda, India. His publications include books and a wide range of articles published in India, the United States, and Australia. Dr. Joshi has given many presentations and has held workshops around the world including at the United Nations, The World Bank, the Pentagon, as well as at Dr. Deepak Chopra’s program in San Diego. This year he was a key speaker at India Conclave 2010 held in New Delhi and recently at the Advait Conference in Russia.

“Dr. Joshi will bring his unique perspective on ethics since he has vast experience working with large corporations,” Hyatt said. “I hope audience members will leave with a better understanding of ethics, management, and business.”
