Innovation is more than just a buzzword. It’s a competitive advantage and it’s a complex undertaking that requires an investment of time and resources.  Real innovation – the kind of breakthrough innovation that warrants a Harvard Business Review case study – requires the right people in the right place…and a culture that channels creativity, stimulates entrepreneurship and encourages teamwork. Join our panel as they discuss the key roadblocks to innovation (and how to address them) and how an innovative culture can be fostered.

As part of the Asia Panel Series, Temple University will host "Developing & Leveraging a Corporate Culture of Innovation" featuring speakers from Microsoft, P&G, GE and EMC Corporation.  Learn more about the March 20th event and register for the free event.

It may seem counter intuitive, but anger at work can be a good thing.  Just ask Dr. Deanna Geddes who's spent 20 years researching and writing on the topic.  She'll be lecturing on Wednesday, February 20th on how company managers can benefit from understanding workplace anger.  Come hear her speak and learn how employee anger displays are not necessarily undesirable and may even promote favorable outcomes at work. Her lecture will help managers reframe their thinking about employee anger—to understand that employee anger is not necessarily self-serving or aggressive. Consequently, managers who overcome initial, personal discomfort and offense from employee anger displays, and withhold sanctions, can increase the possibility of helpful problem solving, airing of differences, and movement forward in pursuing organizational goals.

New Year's resolutions are historically hard to follow through on.  Maybe it's the vagueness ("be healthier" or "work harder") or the sheer ambition (loss 50 pounds in three months) that makes them difficult to deliver upon.  Rather than focus on the external this year, why not make a New Year's resolution that can change your life?  Make 2013 the year you start your Executive MBA.

One great class in the Executive MBA (EMBA) program is "Law and Ethics in the Enterprise" taught by Dr. Lewis Kerman.  A former lawyer with decades of experience teaching future lawyers and seasoned executives, Dr. Kerman brings a unique insight to the class.  Below is a snippet of his recent white paper on Sarbanes-Oxley v. Dodd-Frank.  ​This is the type of critical thinking fostered in the Fox School of Business EMBA program in Singapore.
