SUCCESSION IS LEADING FROM THE MIDDLE - A CASE STUDY IN LIVING THE S & G IN ESG - This HBR article (How one person can change the conscience of an organization - download below) provides a great example of principle-based conscious leadership which gives hope and a template for empowering our organizations to truly live the ESG philosophy and prosper in the long run. Giving people real-life examples emboldens our middle managers to take risks, to step up if we make them aware that this type of behaviour is welcomed if it supports your core values and your ESG commitments. Also, in the area of owner succession and business transformation, empowering the next level and generation of leadership to champion the ESG portfolio enables owners to see succession opportunities and who can lead the business into a prosperous future. Because investors & buyers will see that the talent pool is capable and can move the business forward regardless of ownership or senior leadership.
I’d like to hear your thoughts on this, please share in the comments and pass it on. I'm excited to see everyone's perspectives so we can pool our learnings and take back new ideas to make ESG real in our organizations.
If ESG isn’t a part of your strategic growth planning and execution, then this is your call to action to embrace and live ESG, or you may find it hard to attract investors, customers, talent, partners and ultimately ensure your continued success in the new normal.
