Dr. Rafik Beekun, (an advisor to DinarStandard.com) and Professor of Management and Strategy at University of Nevada, has recently launched a very informative blog titled "The Islamic Workplace" at http://makkah.wordpress.com/.
We have always looked up to the impressive array of contributions Dr. Beekun has made to Islam's perspective on modern business strategy. He has also recently launched a new book 'Strategic Planning & Implementation for Islamic Organizations.' This follows his other two books relating to Islam and business, namely 'Islamic Business Ethics' and 'Leadership in Islam' (co-authored with Dr. Jamal Badawi.)
Dr. Beekun intends to discuss on the blog ethics, leadership, diversity, seerah and strategic planning related posts. The blog already is full of rich information including exemplary anecdotes, positive quotes and relevant videos.
Best of all, its all in the context of professional worklife, eg. work ethics, how to behave at the workplace, managing stress etc. My favorite categories include 'Positive Quotes' relating to workplace, and 'Exemplary stories' which includes stories of personalities such as philanthropist Abdul Sattar Edhi, Nobel Peace prize winner Dr. Yunus, and French Muslim soccer player Franck Ribery.
This is certainly one to be tracked. So don't forget to add it to your RSS reader.
