Business leaders have a tremendous impact on a company’s Social, Environmental, and Corporate Governance. A leader who demonstrates ethics and integrity will inevitably influence his/her team to do the same. Management must ensure that their team is aligned with the company’s social/environmental mission and core values.
Conscious leaders are self-aware and model the behaviour they wish to see in others. They exercise emotional intelligence to effectively turn negatives into positives and problems into solutions.
A strong leader knows the importance of empathy and making others feel valued. Empathic leaders actively listen to the feelings of others, foster connection, and build a foundation of trust.
People thrive from inspiration and a sense of purpose.
Effective leadership encourages the flow of creative ideas and empowers each team member to reach his/her highest potential.
“To lead people, walk beside them …
As for the best leaders, the people do not notice their existence.
The next best, the people honor and praise.
The next, the people fear; and the next, the people hate …
When the best leader’s work is done the people say,
We did it ourselves!”
― Lao Tzu
