Biography:

Louis Pike

As a lecturer in the Ted Rogers School I draw on my experiences as a senior manager and a business consultant to make the course material vivid and relevant.

My teaching philosophy and classroom management style respond to the learners’ educational needs, their life-stage development needs, and their future career needs. I favour a high-engagement, experiential approach to learning through which students reflect on in-class exercises, games and simulations as well as their life experiences to draw conclusions about why they and others behave as they do at work.

Department:

HR Management & Org Behaviour

Research Interests

Baby Boomers approaching retirement age; their need to make meaning of their lives and envisage an authentic, purposeful future.

Select Research and Professional Contributions

My research interest centres on the needs of those at mid-life and beyond to construct a cogent, positive narrative about the lives they have led and to develop goals for a personally and societally meaningful future.  To that end I have done research on life stages and developed a workshop offered by the Chang school.

I have also contributed to the Toronto organizational development community by giving presentations to organizational consultants on how national culture impacts employee behaviour.
