TEDxUD - Dr. Wendy Smith - The Power of Paradox

Wendy Smith earned her Ph.D. in Organizational Behavior at Harvard Business School, and is currently an Assistant Professor of Organizational Behavior at the Alfred Lerner School of Business and Economics at the University of Delaware.Wendy's research focuses on strategic paradoxes -- how leaders and senior teams manage commitments to contradictory agendas. She has explored how senior teams simultaneously explore new possibilities while exploiting existing competencies. She also explores how hybrid organizations, specifically social enterprises, manage social missions and financial goals simultaneously. Her research has been published in journals such as Academy of Management Review, Harvard Business Review, Organization Science, Management Science and Long Range Planning.In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
