Leading Positively Through Stress: The Chemistry of Resonant Leadership
with Dr. Kalu Osiri

Wednesday, May 2, 2018, 11:30 a.m.-1 p.m., Room 202, College of Business Howard L. Hawks Hall, Lincoln, Nebraska

Our lives are filled with stressful events. Most of them are small but annoying hassles, not major events. When the human body reacts to a stressful event, we stimulate a hormonal system called the sympathetic nervous system, which is our body’s way of preparing to defend itself. The dilemma is that in today’s world, we are bombarded with more stressors than occurred thousands of years ago. And yet, our bodies react the same way to the possibility that someone will not like us at work as if a lion was approaching our village. Dr. Kalu Osiri, director of international business program and associate professor of practice, will discuss how to effectively use positive emotion attractors in leadership and how to apply the concepts of intentional change theory.

Can Entrepreneurial Thinking Help Me and My Company? Yes, and Here’s How
with Dr. Varkey Titus Jr.

Wednesday, May 9, 2018, 11:30 a.m.-1 p.m., Room 202, College of Business Howard L. Hawks Hall, Lincoln, Nebraska

Entrepreneurs are the heroes of many modern narratives, but for those working at and managing established companies, it isn’t clear why we should care about entrepreneurship itself. By distilling the critical elements of entrepreneurship — the thinking, processes, and practices—we can glean insightful lessons that can help established companies face their current challenges and shape their potential opportunities. Dr. Varkey Titus Jr., assistant professor of management, will discuss some of the tools in the entrepreneur’s tool box and their relevance to a variety of contexts.

with Dr. Nikos Dimotakis

Wednesday, May 16, 2018, 11:30 a.m.-1 p.m., Room 202, College of Business Howard L. Hawks Hall, Lincoln, Nebraska

Thousands of articles and books purport to share the secret of the one best way to manage people in organizations. These confusing array of opinions and suggestions are often contradictory or based on insufficient evidence, and do little to help managers or business owners lead their organizations and people to success. Dr. Nikos Dimotakis, assistant professor of management, will discuss principles and processes of talent acquisition, motivation, and retention for which there is strong evidence of effectiveness, with an emphasis on applicable solutions.
