IAFOR is delighted to host a panel discussion with Lisa Lam, Director of the Centre for Innovative Service Learning at Hong Kong Baptist University, Hong Kong; and Parissa Haghirian, Professor of International Management at Sophia University, Japan. The discussion will be chaired by Grant Black, associate professor in the Faculty of Commerce at Chuo University in Tokyo and an IAFOR VP. The discussion will explore ideas around leadership as an accidental occurrence: some may train to be a leader, some are born leaders, but for many of us, circumstances thrust upon us a leadership role. Accidental leadership goes hand in hand with innovative learning because the challenges of an unexpected leadership role require a spirit of innovation and commitment to learning. The panel discussion will be followed by a Q&A session.
