The Philosophy in Practice Aspen UK Seminar is a unique seminar that asks participants to reflect on their personal values and the concrete implications for their individual leadership style.
With the help of a selection of readings from a wide range of texts, from the Greek classics to modern day journalism, participants will be able to engage with some of the most universal questions of human existence, including what it means to be human; the origins of justice; the relationship between individual freedom and society, as well as the limits of power.
The Seminar encourages participants to explore some of their most fundamental beliefs about human nature, and then link those back to practical leadership issues and ethical conflicts that are part of our daily professional lives.
It will be moderated by Maria Blair, who has been an Aspen Institute moderator for a number of years. At the moment she is a partner at ghSMART, based in the UK, serving leaders of high performing organisations across all sectors in the areas of leadership development and coaching, management assessment, top team effectiveness, and investors on their most important leadership challenges.
Maria was also the national vice president of the American Cancer Society, the Managing Director of The Rockefeller Foundation, and was also a Rhodes Scholar at Oxford University’s Balliol College, earning a master’s degree in Philosophy, Politics, and Economics, and has her BA degree from Harvard University.
