Business leadership: new approaches to face the challenges of our time with Vinita Bali.

The leadership in the business sector can no longer ignore the important role companies have to play in helping to accelerate the system transformations needed for a more sustainable and equitable future. Whether it is due to external or internal pressure, the understanding of the responsibility of companies with the common good have increased over the past decades. The current times require an expanded consciousness of the leaders and significant shifts in the modus operandi of companies. This may also represent challenges in the process of decision making of a leader.

This Masterclass will offer an opportunity to learn about:

·         The kind of the leadership that business must take to interact with the environment in a responsible manner.

·         Examples of good practices and change in the leadership and companies view of their role.

·         Practical insights on the challenges and opportunities the current times represent to business leaders to align with the sustainability agenda.
