Jane Dutton was awarded the Leadership for Humanistic Management Recognition at the Academy of Management’s annual meeting in Anaheim, CA on August 4. The Leadership for Humanistic Management Recognition is offered by the Humanistic Management Network for service toward the goal of improving society through the field of organizational management.
Also at this year’s Academy, Dutton and Arne Carlson co-hosted a professional development workshop (PDW) titled “Being Generative: Teaching about Relationships and Teaching Relationships Courses.” The goal of the workshop was to inspire, energize, and equip faculty to teach about positive relationships at work. PDW contributors included Arne Carlsen, Jane Dutton, Sally Maitlis, Wendy Murphy, Tyrone Pitsis, Lance Sandelands, JP Stephens, and Kristina Workman.
During other Academy sessions, Dutton also presented two papers with Kristina Workman: “Compassion Artifacts: Potent Potential Resources for Reducing Suffering” and “Leaders Moves Matter For Compassion.”
Jane Dutton is a Robert L. Kahn Distinguished University Professor of Business Administration and Psychology and a co-founder of the Center for Positive Organizations. The Leadership in Humanistic Management Recognition will be Dutton’s 9th award from the Academy of Management, including a 2015 Lifetime Achievement Award from the Organization Behavior Division.
