Future Leader Webinar Series on : “Sustainability and the Future Leader”

“Solving Today’s Problems with Tomorrow’s Capabilities”

The Why..

The entire world is going through the most challenging global pandemic in a hundred years. Leaders are dealing with many unknown variables and facing an uncertain future. The COVID-19 pandemic has also created a disruption with lasting effects. This period of extreme stress also creates an opportunity for leaders and managers to unlearn and relearn critical skills and to act in very unfamiliar conditions. For some organizations the COVID-19 might create opportunities to change its core business, aligned to Sustainable Management practices. Organizations that successfully integrate sustainability management practices are essentially making money in responsible ways as we move into this New Normal.

The What..

What is Sustainability Management anyway? Future leaders must wake up to the fact that they must adopt new ways of working. Future leaders must embrace sustainability—this means they must seek to deliver outcomes that maximize value across the so-called ‘triple bottom line’ (Planet, People, Profit) to ensure future generations have the same opportunities that we currently enjoy. In many ways, future leaders have no choice. We are seeing a shift to a new capitalistic model, where organizations need to embrace more responsible ways of making money! Organizations that want to thrive in the Neo-Capitalist Era need to see how their core business link to and support one or more of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), put forth by the United Nations in Adopting and adapting best practices in sustainable leadership and sustainable business/ organizational operations will enable the future leader to create new value throughout the entire value chain and this in turn will differentiate their organization from others.

The How…

Being a future leader is really about balancing three critical roles to support any organization’s transition into such a 21st Century organization: Business Management, Strategic Leadership, and People Development. One of these roles focuses on the here and now. The other two are future-oriented. Future leaders also need to cultivate the 9 mindsets and skills required to build resilience, enhance influence and cultivate a different kind of innovation to meet the challenges of this new world.
