Creating and Capturing Value in the Health, Wellness, and Personal Resiliency Sectors

Talk description:
Stewart Thornhill will be sharing a course he developed while participating in the Faculty Scholars Program in Integrative and Complementary Medicine.  Designed for business students, this course examines how to create and capture value in the health, wellness, and personal resiliency sectors.  Students develop tools and methods to implement practices in their workplaces that contribute to wellness and resilience among all employees. Students also learn to apply wellness tools and practices in their own lives.

Stewart Thornhill, Executive Director of the Zell Lurie Institute for Entrepreneurial Studies, serves as the Eugene Applebaum Professor of Entrepreneurial Studies and the Managing Director of the Zell Lurie Commercialization Fund. He joins Ross from Ivey Business School at Western University in London, Ontario, where he served as the executive director of the Pierre L. Morrissette Institute for Entrepreneurship and a member of the faculty, focused on strategy and entrepreneurship. Thornhill’s research interests include strategic execution, leadership, competitive strategy, innovation and corporate entrepreneurship.

Research is the heart of Positive Organizational Scholarship (POS), and we want to make sure that we support each other in developing high quality research. To that end, we created the Adderley Positive Research Incubator for sharing and encouraging POS-related research ideas that are at various stages of development.
