Executive Talk on Charisma with Elesa Zehndorfer

Executive Talk on Charisma with Elesa Zehndorfer

In the upcoming Executive Talk, on the 26th of November, from 7 pm RO time, we are meeting with Elesa Zehndorfer Ph.D., Research Officer for British Mensa, to talk about Charisma: Cult of Personality. We will discuss applying theory to current business scenarios and encourage you to evaluate the presence and value of the charismatic forces that surround us.
 
Charisma is powerful, sought after, yet elusive; it opens doors, wins elections & drives the stellar growth of companies and careers. We all know it, desire it & admire somebody who possesses it. Compellingly, charisma is not as mythical as many of us consider it to be; it can be empirically measured and taught, possesses an observable biological foundation & is situated in legitimate positions of authority. It can function as a great force for good. 
 
It can also work as a vastly destructive force. Research informs us that charisma possesses a dark side; companies led by charismatic CEO's consistently underperform those that are led by their non-charismatic counterparts, for example. Cult of personality often leads to a destructive corporate culture when the CEO is charismatic, & charisma has been observed by researchers to be related closely to narcissism & fraud. This lecture subsequently provides an introduction to charisma, applying theory to current business scenarios, and encouraging students to evaluate the presence and value of the charismatic forces that surround them.'
 
Dr. Zehndorfer has written for many publications and appeared as an expert on BBC Radio 4 on charismatic theory. She is the author of five textbooks: 'Leadership: Performance Beyond Expectations' (Routledge, 2020), 'Evolution, Politics & Charisma: Why do Populists Win? (Routledge, 2019), Emotional & Irrational Investing: Causes & Solutions (Routledge, 2017), Charismatic Leadership: The Role of Charisma in the Global Financial Crisis (2015) and 'Leadership: A Critical Introduction' (Routledge, 2014).
 
The event will take place online [on Microsoft Teams platform] on the 26th of November from 7 PM [RO Time]. Participation is free, but please register, in order to receive the access link: https://forms.gle/dULpDiqWifaYBvq59

Talent Acquisition in the Digital Era – Facts and Myths

Talent Acquisition in the Digital Era – Facts and Myths

Radu Panait, HR director of E-Infra Group, has delivered an Executive Talk on “Talent Acquisition in the Digital Era – Facts and Myths” on the 7th of October, bringing to the online audience arguments and examples about the changes in the Human Resources Industry and future trends in talent acquisition.

As a provider of executive education, we consider it is highly relevant to discuss talent acquisition and the transformations in the Human Resources Management industry, especially in these uncertain times generated by the Covid-19 pandemic. With more than 20 years of experience in human resources, in Romania and abroad, in companies like IBM, UTI, SAB Miller, and Ursus, Radu Panait offered a clear overview of the transformations that shaped the Human Resources Industry in the last decades and addressed the nowadays trends of digitalization in the recruitment process. Moreover, he offered an analysis of the role of social media platforms and their relevance in the talent acquisition process and how AI will transform this area of activity.

Radu brought to the forefront clear examples from the industry practices – personality and ability tests, social media screening, gamification incorporated in various assessments, and AI tools – indicating the processes that will become the new norm.

Organisational Storytelling: Harnessing this powerful management and communication tool

Organisational Storytelling: Harnessing this powerful management and communication tool

We share with you some thoughts from our last Executive Talk where we discussed about storytelling. During this talk, we had the privilege and the pleasure to listen to our dear friend David Collins from Northumbria University, who also works as Managing Director for Gain Insight Ltd, a consulting company offering bespoke services on HRM, organizational change/ transformation, and the application of narratives to organizational problems.

David Collins has more than 30 years of experience working for some of the most renowned UK universities. He published extensively on topics such as organizational culture, management, and storytelling and conducted research and consulting work in various companies and organizations in the UK and across Europe, including Romania. David has recently published his sixth book - The Organizational Storytelling Workbook - a state of the art study which offers: (a) critical engagement with academic debates on organizational storytelling; and (b) a series of exercises designed to allow users to improve their capability as organizational storytellers.

During the talk, David managed to distill within a concentrated and short presentation some of the main theoretical underpinnings of management and cultural studies and some of the main findings of this book, showing us how storytelling can be used as a means of redeeming our understanding of all cultural matters and improve our management skills. David considers that storytelling can be used to harness cultural artifacts, stories, and narratives and contribute to the building of articulated and cohesive organizations. This Executive Talk can be seen as a start to anyone who wants to practice and learn these skills, while the storytelling workbook is the perfect companion to any executive or postgraduate course in storytelling as well as a useful and enjoyable companion to any individual manager that wishes to improve their ability and capacity for meaningful storytelling.

In the upcoming Executive Talk, we are meeting with Andrada Goriță, Tax Manager within the Financial Services department, and Ionuț Măstăcăneanu, the leader of the Financial Services Team within the Tax department, @KPMG Romania.
They will discuss reporting rules and taxation within the European Union and how the new European Directive on Administrative Cooperation in the field of taxation (2018) has changed the reporting regime increasing transparency and cooperation in the way taxes are reported and calculated across member states.
The event will take place online [on Microsoft Teams platform] on the 28th of October from 5 PM [RO Time]. Participation is free, and 100% online on our Microsoft Teams channel. 


Taxation and tax reporting are policy issues that are often shadowed at the European level in the favor of other discussions that focus on regional convergence, integration, and development. However, for more integration, Europe also needs a tighten cooperation and more transparency in taxation and tax reporting. In light of the recent investigations on harmful practices and the use of offshore companies (the so-called "Lux Leaks", "Panama Papers" and "Malta Leaks"), the European Parliament has called on the Commission to introduce tougher transparency requirements for intermediaries.

In this sense, a new Directive on Administrative Cooperation in the field of taxation (the DAC) was introduced, making the automatic exchange of information in the field of taxation in relation to reportable cross-border arrangements as mandatory. The directive introduced an obligation on intermediaries and, in certain cases, taxpayers, to disclose potentially aggressive tax planning arrangements, enabling at the same time the tax administrations to exchange information on these structures. The Directive was formally adopted during the ECOFIN meeting on May 25, 2018, and has entered into force on June 25, 2018. Unfortunately, the outbreak of the current pandemic has slowed things down.

These new rules entered into force with the 1st of July 2020, when relevant taxpayers were supposed to file information on reportable cross-border arrangements the first step of which was implemented between the date of entry into force (June 25, 2018) and the date of application of the Directive (July 1, 2020). In the pandemic context, however, countries were given the option to postpone the reporting deadlines for a maximum period of six months, therefore the reporting period will start as of 1 January 2021 for the majority of EU Member States, Romania included. This allows us some time of reflection and the opportunity to discuss during this Executive Talk the effects and consequences of these reforms on the taxation regime in Romania and the rest of EU countries.
