Masterclass Hope 2019 (Dutch)

RECENT EVENT  – On January 17th 2019, ILSE and EHERO will again organize a masterclass on ‘Hope as a motivator’. With insights for entrepreneurs, managers and all other interested professionals.

Everyone knows the concept of hope as it is used in ordinary language. We all regularly express our hopes. Politicians also regularly appeal to hope to influence voters. A hopeful disposition influences much of our behaviour, also in organsations. But how exactly does that work?

The Institute of Leadership and Social Ethics (ILSE), Leuven, together with the Erasmus Happiness Economics Research Organisation (EHERO), Rotterdam, offer, in collaboration with the Goldschmeding Foundation, the Masterclass ‘Hope: A Crucial Factor for People, Work, and the Economy’. This one-day Masterclass offers a broad, scientifically based perspective on hope as an influential motivation. You will be presented with findings from psychology, economics, philosophy and theology – all with a view to current practice.

The aim of this masterclass is to make scholarly research accessible to managers, entrepreneurs and other professionals. Thus speakers in this masterclass will illustrate scholarly insights by means of practical examples. Speakers are:

  • Prof. dr. Micha de Winter
  • Dr. Marianne van Woerkom
  • Matthijs Steeneveld
  • Dr. Martijn Burger & Emma Pleeging
  • Prof. dr. Patrick Nullens
  • Ruben van Zwieten

This masterclass is intended for economists, directors, managers, business psychologists, organisational experts and HR-professionals, as well as others interested in the causes, effects, and significance of hope in organisations, the economy, and society as a whole.
