Understanding how a leader’s blend of power and benevolence can predict their leadership success will be the focus of an upcoming talk by an international guest speaker.

Shaul Oreg, Professor of Organizational Behaviour at the Hebrew University Business School in Israel, will discuss how organizations are shaped as a reflection of their leaders’ personalities. The talk takes place Friday, Sept. 29 as part of the Goodman School of Business’ Luncheon Speaker Series.
