Management Education Should Become Holistic

There seems to be a consensus that high quality management, both in the private and public sectors, is one of the keys for successful business and rapid economic, social and political development.

Whether good managers are born, or they can be trained at institutions is still an open question.

Management techniques and skills can be learned-on-the-job and/or through attending training programmes. Other managerial qualities, such as creativity and innovation, imagination, intuition, the art of decision making and good human relations require, that the management trainee expand his(her) consciousness and develops both hemispheres of his(her) brain.

When learning the art of management is centered only on the development of the left hemisphere of the brain, the end result will be that most of the trainee's perception will be limited to the sensing of facts and the outward phenomena of people and things. The judgment and decision making abilities of the trainee will be dominated by linear (habitual) thinking. Feeling will only play a subsidiary or even a negligible role. There will also be a tendency towards a strong desire to regulate and control life as much as possible.

On the other hand, if learning the art of management is based upon the simultaneous development of both the right and left hemispheres of the brain (holistic management education) consciousness will be expanded and perception will produce the right mixture of the factual and the intuitive. Information needed for judgment and decision-making will not be limited to the perception of facts, people and things, but will also be acquired from the interior world of concepts and ideas. There will be a strong desire to understand life and to adapt to it. The thinking process will be lateral, holistic and metaphoric, and a natural harmony between thinking, feeling and volition will be established.

Expansion of consciousness is an experiential process which cannot be learned through conventional management training techniques such as lectures and discussions. It requires that the trainee be exposed to specific processes known as INNERWAYS. For details and a matrix of 90 innerways visit http://www.love-or-money.org. This exposure can take place on an individual basis, as part of a group, or a combination of both. The exposure should be regular, and for an extended period of time, which could vary between six months to a lifetime.
