Duration: One hour

About the Webinar

The extended social, economic, and health crisis the world has witnessed in recent years has highlighted the need for leading with purpose. While corporate purpose has historically been one of the most underutilized themes of the business world, the pandemic and the ensuing human and commercial setback have awoken boards and senior executives to the power of leading with purpose for both social and financial benefits. 

As we continue to see enterprises lift themselves out of the extended pandemic, organizations will need to nurture the approach of leading with purpose, making it more central in culture, business strategy, and talent engagement. This new era will hopefully center more around stakeholder capitalism, moving away from solo narratives of shareholder capitalism, with the shift being influenced by customers, employees, investors, and society at large. 

Join us on this webinar to learn how leading with purpose can help organizations evolve into more socially accepted and financially better-off versions of themselves through specific strategies and tactics. We’ll dive into insights from our white paper, Beyond Doing Good: 6 Mindset Shifts for Purposeful Leadership, gathered from in-depth interviews with 20 C-suite leaders and board directors across Asia. 

What You’ll Learn

In this webinar, you’ll learn:

  • What leading with purpose looks like in practice – on both a personal and professional level  
  • How leading organizations are implementing a purpose-driven agenda and incorporating purpose within their company cultures
  • Ways organizations can practice leading with purpose in an authentic way, and avoid “green washing” 
  • The role HR leaders play in leading with purpose and how can they advocate it successfully throughout the organization

Incorporate leading with purpose into your organization’s culture with a leadership development solution tailored specifically to your unique needs and challenges.
