How Do You Manage?: Team-building as an act of charity - International Herald Tribune
How Do You Manage?: Team-building as an act of charity - International Herald Tribune: "Bob Kapelski, corporate schools manager for United Parcel Service, orchestrates volunteer projects for new managers as part of the company's introductory two-week training. Kapelski spoke of organizing a trip to a charity near Portsmouth, New Hampshire, called IMEC, a cooperative that collects secondhand medical equipment and distributes it to hospitals in developing countries. New managers were put to work sanitizing equipment like operating tables and wheelchairs, loading them onto pallets and wrapping them for shipping. The purpose of the exercise was to let new managers apply the skills they had just learned in the classroom."
