Key Highlights about this #2 session:

The event emphasised the significance of purposeful leadership and its impact on both people and the planet. Purpose-driven leaders, who prioritise positive impact alongside profit-making, have the potential to inspire and motivate employees, leading to higher productivity and overall organisational success. Moreover, integrating ESG considerations in business practices enables long-term value creation.

ESG, which stands for Environmental, Social, and Governance, signifies an organisation's impact on adopting sustainable practices, fostering purposeful and effective leadership, and cultivating a positive workplace culture. Interestingly, a survey revealed that 84% of employees consider it important to work for an organisation that positively impacts society.

To initiate the integration of purposeful leadership and ESG, several actionable steps were suggested. These include conducting a materiality assessment to identify key areas of focus, setting targets and measuring progress, and seeking professional assistance if needed. 

This event is aimed at top managers and business leaders so stay tuned for the upcoming sessions of the Leadership Talks, tailored to provide interactive and insightful discussions! Don't miss the opportunity to enhance your leadership skills and drive positive change within your organisation.
