What’s the higher purpose of your organisation?
Key to successful 21st Century Leadership is the ability to engage customers, employees and partners. And nothing is more engaging than a higher purpose. Surely companies are for profit. But as a leader you need to move beyond profit to engage and motivate.
From last months Leadership Academy session on 21st Century Leadership we have gathered some inspiration on how to: rethink capitalism, lead with purpose, implement democratic leadership and organise in radical new ways.
John Mackey from Whole Foods on the importance of a higher purpose:
Umair Haque, Author and Blogger HBR on Constructive Capitalism:
Terri Kelly, W.L. Gore on a different Management Model – interview with Garry Hamel
Paul Green, Morning Star: Self-Management
We had a great Leadership Academy session with Paul Green on October 4 – unfortunately we did not record it, but here is a video where he shares The Morning Star vision about Democratic Leadership.
Next Leadership Network & Academy session is November 8, 2012 where Whole Foods will share perspectives on Social Business & The Social Organisation.
