Donatella de Paoli

Embodiment, space and technology in leadership as theatre productions.

In this talk Dr Donatella de Paoli from BI Oslo presented her work on embodiment, space and technology in leadership as theatre productions. 

Suppose we log off for a while; free of digital media and beyond digital interruptions. If there is leadership that is not “remote”, “virtual” and distributed, what would that be? Leadership of performative theatre productions experience work and leadership operating seemingly free form technology in “holy theatre spaces”. In offices we also “go on stage” and “take the floor” and empirical studies reveal intricate  connections between such embodied leadership and space. Technology still matters but how?

Donatella de Paoli has published on the relations between Art and Leadership and has developed a highly successful education in Culture and Arts Management at BI Oslo.
