On Saturday, Aug 21, 2010, the BRI organized its 3rd dialogue session for 2010. John Krysko held an audience of about 50 participants captivated in his views on applying spiritual practices in contemporary workplaces. Krysko started his presentation with the first sentence from Rudyard Kipling's "The Ballad of East and West". Krysko underscored the broadminded approach that Leibniz is known for by explaining that he acknowledged Newtonian thinking, but also identified with the Eastern teachings of Mencius and Confucius. Internal morality and the law of causation are also recurring themes, which one can not only find in Sun Tzu's The Art of War, but also in Greek philosophy. Krysko subsequently brought to the forefront, Theory Z, which is often credited to Ouchi, but was initially developed by Abraham Maslow. Theory Z gives people hope that there can be a positive interchange, and that good ideas don't just have to come from top management, but can come from all sides if acknowledged.
