Summary:"This book demonstrates alternative ways of leading sustainable
organizations. It identifies 19 criteria for sustainable leadership
practices that can be found in globally successful enterprises such
as Allianz, BMW, Munich Reinsurance, Nokia, Novartis and Porsche.
Sustainable principles include promoting ethical behavior, long-term
thinking and innovation, and valuing employees and other stakeholders
such as the community, the environment and future generations. The
author presents concrete examples of leadership from 28 interesting
case studies to illustrate the many different ways in which
sustainable leadership principles can be implemented. The book
concludes that shifting to sustainable leadership practices may
appear difficult for enterprises based in the USA, UK and Australia,
but is essential for the long-term survival of these firms. Indeed,
several well-known businesses from these countries have already
adopted sustainable leadership principles, including
Colgate-Palmolive, Continental Airlines, HSBC, IBM, Marriott,
Nordstrom and SAS." "By highlighting a dramatically different
approach to leadership which can prove financially, socially and
environmentally successful, this book will have a great appeal to
scholars and students with an interest in leadership, strategy,
international management and organisational studies. It will also be
a valuable and practical aid for managers and consultants looking for
new directions and ways of running their businesses."--BOOK JACKET. ڋ
