    We are both rational and emotional. As far back as 2002, John Kotter emphasized the critical role of emotions in successful change programs and in business education. In 2004, Mintzberg proposed that MBA programs need to rebalance teaching in the classroom with greater emphasis on the emotional, caring, feeling side of our nature. Yet a majority of programs continue to focus on developing logical and analytical left-brain thinking, rather than intuitive and emotional right-brain thinking. The Covid-19 pandemic has shown us that managers need to manage teams even when high turbulence hits our eco-systems, in ever-changing contexts, which requires creative thinking and emotional intelligence beyond exclusively pursuing the bottom line. What can we, as educators, do to bring the wiseethical manager back into management, a manager who uses her full cerebral hemisphere as per contextual requirements? Through this PDW we aim to contextualize research that suggests that this is an essential stepping stone for leaders to grow and succeed in our current globalized economy and society. The purpose and expected outcome of this PDW is to advance participants' competency in developing self-awareness and working with emotions skillfully. Presenters will share experiential pedagogies that can be enriching such as meditation, emotional intelligence exercises and journaling. Furthermore, participants will be encouraged to delve into an emotional space through demonstrations of vulnerability, which is critical for developing self-awareness. By modeling these learnings in the classroom, it is hoped that faculty will favorably influence business students to draw on left and right-brain thinking, and to apply this as future leaders.
