Heat, greed and human need: climate change, capitalism and sustainable wellbeing


This lecture asks how far can dangerous global warming be averted, without worsening deprivation and inequality. Professor Gough will argue that the satisfaction of human needs - as opposed to wants - is the only viable measure for negotiating trade-offs between climate change and human wellbeing, now and in the future. A transition is proposed, moving from 'green growth' to 'recomposing' patterns of consumption in the rich world, cutting high-energy luxuries in favour of low-energy routes to meeting basic needs. This in turn can prepare the way if necessary for an economy that flourishes without growth. Implications for business and higher education institutions will be outlined.

Speaker: Professor Ian Gough, London School of Economics

The rise and fall of shared leadership in a top management team


This paper reports on the emergence of competing forms of leadership-shared and hierarchical-in a Top Management Team (TMT). Drawing on a three-year ethnography of the full life-cycle of the TMT, Dr Petriglieri show how the possibility of alternative forms of leadership emerging created a battle for authority that undermined the team's collective and its members' individual capacity to lead. Using this ethnography as empirical ground, she built a theory of the fabrication of leadership that details the complex group and emotional processes (both conscious and unconscious) through which leadership forms emerge in senior teams.
