People who are truly strong lift others up. People who are truly powerful bring others together.

Leaders…

Leaders must pick causes they won’t abandon easily, remain committed despite setbacks and communicate their big ideas over and over again in every encounter.

– Rosabeth Moss Kanter

Leaders….

Leaders can help employees connect with and relate to people across organisational divides by doing four things:

  • developing and developing cultural brokers
  • encouraging employees to ask questions
  • helping people to see things through other peoples’ eyes
  • broadening everybody’s vision of internal & external expertise networks

– Tiziana Casciaro, Amy C.Edmondson & Sujin Jang (HBR May-June 2019)

Saving…

Saving our planet, lifting people out of poverty, advancing economic growth… these are one and the same fight. We must connect the dots between climate change, water scarcity, energy shortages, global health, food security and women’s empowerment. Solutions to one problem must be solutions for all.

– Ban Ki-moon
