The Business Case for Sustainability, Equity and Inclusion
To navigate today’s complex business world, conscious leaders need to master a new set of skills for long-term sustainability. They also must be able to address the human need to be seen, heard, and connected. Otherwise, the experience of exclusion—social pain—prevents their teams and organizations from fully thriving.
Leaders need to begin by reflecting on their own leadership mindsets and behaviors to build trust within their teams and organizations. When leaders are able to connect their own personal narratives to those of their organizations, they gain insight into how their own beliefs influence not only their leadership decisions and behaviors, but also their organizations. In doing so, leaders can improve all aspects—social, environmental, and financial—of the triple bottom line.
