10 Reflections on the B for Good Leaders Summit

  • ‘Radical’ is subjective — there was lots of talk about what was ‘radical’. Radical activism, radical change, radical transparency. This is very much dependent on your starting point and it would be good to review radical change through a more compassionate lense. Rather than an ‘uber-radical’ firm stick the boot in when a big bugger of a corporation has made a significant change and shift in direction (note, the big bugger has to have taken genuine action in this scenario), we acknowledge the difference in scale and the starting point and celebrate it as a win
  • Power is important — We need to earn it, exercise it and deliver responsibly against it if we’re to smash through the status quo
  • But so is compassion — A movement has to be inclusive by nature. That’s not to say we shouldn’t denounce poor action and hold accountable those that are making things worse. But if we have a leader or a brand knocking on the door wanting to join in, and have put in some hard yards, we should embrace them not exclude them. That door should always be kept open”
