A Conversation with Dr. Henry Mintzberg, Author, ‘Bedtime Stories for Managers’
By almost any measure, Henry Mintzberg is a serious thinker: Professor of Management Studies at McGill University in Montreal, PhD graduate of the MIT Sloan School of Management, holder of 20 honorary degrees, a member of the Royal Society of Canada, and author of 19 previous books on management.
Which is why in his 20th book, Bedtime Stories for Managers – out next month, Dr. Mintzberg is credible when he advises business owners and C-Suite executives to come down from their lofty leadership roles and view the world from the perspective of their customers and employees.
Dr. Mintzberg not only shares some of his book’s 42 deceptively light – but sneakily serious – chapters with host and reputation coach Dean Rotbart, he also opens up about one of his strange non-business fascinations, on which he’s also a leading global expert. (You’ll have to listen to discover Dr. Mintzberg’s unusual hobby.)
