Abstract

Our current practices in teaching sustainable management are replete with scientific facts, analytical tools, optimization models, and management techniques. The key pedagogical goal is to help students intellectually understand and solve problems. I argue for a different focus for teaching sustainability. Managing sustainably requires students to develop passion for sustainability. Passion for sustainability can be taught using a holistic pedagogy that integrates physical and emotional or spiritual learning with traditional cognitive (intellectual) learning about sustainable management. It identifies options for including physical and emotional components in sustainable management courses and provides examples of the transformative potential of such embodied learning. A prototype course design on managing with passion for sustainability is suggested. Copyright of the Academy of Management, all rights reserved.
