'Why 21st century leaders need to think beyond business'
Many organisations approach innovation incrementally. They miss out on the much bigger promise of re-aligning their business with what moves and shakes the 21st century. Those who get it think like city mayors. They don’t just look after their own house but take responsibility for the entire city. Mayor-leaders operate at the level of the ecosystem, beyond the traditional purview of the company. They create new dynamics of value creation that generate multi-fold returns for themselves and their stakeholders.
In this talk, Greg Bernarda unfolds a new narrative for what business can become and takes us through a model of new value creation. It's at once a new way of thinking and working. For leaders, this is a perspective for renewed relevance and growth, but also the opportunity to embrace the next generation of talent while participating in the making of the new economy and aligning their business with the advancement of society. It's also a talk for those who no longer want to live different lives in private and in the office. In the 21st century, values unleash value and create better outcomes for all involved.
