Sustainable Leadership : Honeybee and Locust Approaches Paperback / softback



The business case for operating along sustainable principles is becoming very clear.

Sustainable organizations outperform their peers on many criteria, including corporate social responsibility, employee satisfaction and - surprising for some - even financially. Sustainable Leadership: Honeybee and Locust Approaches presents an evidence-based view of how 23 leadership practices facilitate outcomes that go beyond what is commonly referred to as the triple bottom line - environmental sustainability, corporate social responsibility and financial success.

The book centers on a powerful metaphor of honeybee and locust behaviors, which illustrate two leadership philosophies with very different outcomes for a business and its viability.

Gathering evidence from scholars combined with observations from successful firms around the world, the book presents a bundle of principles, behaviors and beliefs that forms a sustainable leadership system. This engaging, insightful book offers a set of principles that can be adapted in many ways to underpin sustainable leadership in different situations.

It provides evidence and a rationale for building a business case to change towards more sustainable practices.
