An ode (from Ancient Greek: ᾠδή, romanized : ōdḗ) is a type of lyric poetry. Odes are elaborately structured poems praising or glorifying an event or individual, describing nature intellectually as well as emotionally.
In early March, well known author and influencer from the Harvard Business School, Amy Edmondson, posted about one of the world's remarkable thinkers and compassionate human beings -- Edgar Schein, Society of Sloan Fellows professor of management emeritus -- who recently passed away.
This session will be an opportunity to explore the poetic 'ode' format of the strophe, the antistrophe, and the epode -- using inspirations we've garnered from Dr Schein. To get started you may wish to explore some of the resources cited in a write-up about his life at: https://lnkd.in/eQYqPEPi
We'll hold the discussion for the first 90 minutes and then those who would like to, will meet locally and raise a glass and make a toast in his honour.
