Columnist Alison Maitland looks at success stories of part-time executives and argues that business schools should be teaching aspiring executives how to lead people part-time: It would be a perfect way to learn how to inspire and motivate people in our increasingly mobile, virtual world. Perhaps more importantly, current managers should try working flexibly to see if they are as good at trusting and empowering their teams as they would like to think. She predicts that defining people as full- or part-time will become outdated as more organizations move to rewarding for performance and results rather than for days and hours.
