Incorporating Csíkszentmihályi’s Flow Theory

into Management and Leadership Practice


One of world’s most distinguished social science scholars is Mihály Csíkszentmihályi, whose renown rests especially on his Theory of Flow: “A mental state in which a person performing an activity is fully immersed in a feeling of energized focus, full involvement, and enjoyment”.
Until recently, insufficient attention has been paid to the many ways in which Flow Theory ideas can be used and leveraged by managers and leaders to enhance successful practice. Filling this gap, a panel of CEU Business School professors and invited experts in the field will discuss how the Theory of Flow can be innovatively learned and used by practitioners, including leaders, managers, entrepreneurs and students of management, as a way of simultaneously improving organizational effectiveness and individual satisfaction.
The Forum will introduce a just-published book on this topic.

My CEU Business School education has been a key differentiator during an otherwise very competitive recruitment process. I would like to thank all my great peers of the 2013-14 cohort and the wonderful faculty at the B-School for the valuable learning experience I had during my time in BP."
