XIMR - GRADED FORMATION IN MANAGEMENT SCIENCE & HUMANITIES (This is our Jesuit Charism)
1) Consider your “inner ecology”
The practice of compassionate self-awareness: ‘caress your heart’;
Our sense of humor is it intoxicated with anger and arrogance?
Our gestures are they sometimes aggressive and ‘poisoned’?
Do you seek tolerance and forgiveness without sacrificing justice and respect for life?
How to be aware of the dignity of persons, whether they be ‘devoured by misery’ or lost in the illusion of nobility?
Process Workshops: Special Meditations, Painting, Dancing, Celebrating, Quieting...
This awareness is crucial, if we have to bring ourselves to our outer universe.
2) Consider your deeper sense of connection with the ecology (universe) around you
Comparative Philosophy (thought processes across cultures & histories)
Comparative Religions and
Celebrating Diversity in Practice (Festivals/ Feasts in all their meaningful rituals)
Language and Culture (study of Spanish)
Sociology; Spirituality for Management.
Immersion in the Life of the Tribals for a week.

Organizational direction comes in several forms. The mission statement is your loftiest guiding light – and your least specific. As you work your way down the hierarchy, the statements become more concrete, practical, and ultimately unique. No other company will have the same strategy statement, which defines your competitive advantage, or balanced scorecard, which tracks how you implement your particular strategy.
Why we exist
What we believe in and how we will behave
What we want to be
What our competitive game plan will be
The BASIC ELEMENTS
of a Strategy Statement
OBJECTIVE = Ends
SCOPE = Domain
ADVANTAGE = Means
How we will monitor and implement that plan
METHODOLOGY: Ignatian Communitarian Discernment
