Schulich Alumnus Nominated for Thinkers50 Distinguished Achievement Award
Dr. Karl Moore (PhD, ’95), Associate Professor of Strategy and Organization at McGill University’s Desautels Faculty of Management has been nominated for the Thinkers50 Distinguished Achievement Awards. The Thinkers50 awards, widely regarded as the Oscars of management thinking, will take place in London in November.
Karl is being recognized for his contributions to the study of leadership, CEOs and the C-Suite, an area of interest he developed during his time as a Ph.D. student and teacher at Schulich School of Business. He has leveraged his access to CEOs, thought leaders, and political leaders, including Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, in his CEO Speaker Series and his radio show The CEO Series, to look at the relationship between leadership and introversion, extroversion, and ambiversion.
“The literature in the past suggested that the overwhelming percentage of CEOs and C-Suite Executives consider themselves to be extroverts. In fact, it’s about half and half,” Karl says. Successful business leaders need to be able to draw on the strengths of both personality types.
Karl credits his time at Schulich in helping develop two essential elements to his success as an expert on business leadership. “My time at Schulich School of Business was the absolute foundation of my career as a researcher and teacher.”
