Kellogg Prof at Northwestern Cites Joseph Campbell

Michelle L. Buck, clinical professor of leadership at the Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern, cited Joseph Campbell and his work in an article titled “How to Develop a Leadership Mindset for Uncertain Times.” The article states,”Buck encourages people to think about how they can generate transformation from adversity. To illustrate this point, she turns to the work of Joseph Campbell, who studied the archetypal “hero’s journey.” That journey is considered heroic and courageous because it always involves a person stepping into an abyss, into some sort of struggle. Then the hero emerges on the other side having gained insights and wisdom that allow for a transformation.” Buck goes on to discuss why leaders find Campbell’s model helpful and what tools it can offer them.
