IMD MAY 2010
Dear Reader,

Should employees be allowed to watch World Cup matches during office hours? With the World Cup fast approaching, this is a question preying on the minds of many managers. IMD has weighed in on this topic by outlining the pros and cons in its latest Great Debate article.

Meanwhile, IMD Professor Ben Bryant, Director of the Mobilizing People program, describes the characteristics of a "mindful leader" in his article "Leading for the Future".
Happy reading,
IMD Webletter Team
