Business, and Business Leaders, are a Force For Good… they’d better be for all our sakes

Why?

Three reasons:

  1. Economic – Business is the only way the debt will ever be repaid.
  2. Society – We need both strong private and public sectors – each is dependent on the other. Without a strong private sector there will be fewer hospitals, schools and police. Without a strong public sector society will collapse.
  3. People – Must be more engaged, valued and fulfilled in ALL organisations.

How?

Business and business leaders are a Force For Good when they lead with Truth, Trust and Transparency, both internally and externally.

  • Truth: Tell the truth: good and bad and when you do, strip away the mystery, jargon and hype. Tell us the simple facts.
  • Trust: Build internal and external trust based on what you say and do.
  • Transparency: Be more open – internally and externally.

PS Naked Leader and Molten, The Global Energy Specialists, are partnering to champion business, and business leaders as a Force for Good. We are starting with The Energy Sector as it is such an essential industry, presently under siege. White Paper published on Monday 31st March.

    Absolutely business leaders are a force for good and so are educational leaders such as Mark Durkin, the two working brilliantly in unison.

    Love that Force for Good slogan.
    Ingenious with the shirt pulling, clever graphic.

  • Thomas Frith

    The truth element is vital.
    Everybody has to earn respect as a leader by being truthful and honest, otherwise you lose integrity.

  • Anita Raymond

    I agree with the social, economic and people-based arguments entirely.
    Thought-provoking as ever David.

    Truth, trust and transparency. If only all business showed that.
    My business environment has more elephants in the room than the indoor elephant enclosure at the biggest zoo in the world.
    There is no transparency, just skullduggery. No truth just people covering up for each other in a web of fibs.
    As for trust, none of us would trust the other further than they could throw them.
    It is not a pleasant experience but then it pays the bills and that is the most important thing.
    The rest we have to deal with although I can’t help thinking how much more productive my colleagues and I would be if we spent as much time colluding with each other on getting tasks done rather than trying to outdo the other.

    That’s a very transparent argument with a lot of truth in it!

    The economy is key here, we need a strong one and the tie-up with Molten sounds great.
