Overview of the “Paradoxical Leadership Industry-Academia Joint Course” The recent changes in social conditions present management leaders with the following issues that contain contradictory elements, in other words, “paradoxical issues”.
● How to achieve both short-term economic benefits and long-term environmental considerations
● How to actively challenge new businesses while maintaining and developing existing businesses
● How can individuals achieve self-sustaining career development while enhancing the ability of the organization to execute strategies? A leader who faces these issues with the question of how to make paradoxical elements coexist and balance them (both/and) instead of choosing between the two (or). is called paradoxical leadership, and various studies have begun in business administration.
The “Paradoxical Leadership Industry-Academia Joint Course” was established with the aim of clarifying the type of management required by society in the future and cultivating leaders who will be responsible for that management. In this course, we will explore the new leader image required in the coming era.
