Companies that have integrated a contribution to society into their business models are more likely than others to succeed for the long term. This book provides you with information, tips, and tools to assess and strengthen your company for ongoing success. Through the use of case studies, the book describes the leaders’ journeys – the mistakes they made, the successes they achieved, and the lessons they learned. Some are certified as Benefits Corporations (B Corps) because they have incorporated a clear societal purpose into their missions and they are able to demonstrate positive social impact. Others, while not certified B Corps, are at various stages in their commitments to society. The book is for leaders at many levels, including CEOs, senior leaders, and managers, as well as those without formal positions of authority but who can influence others and contribute to a sustainable culture.

As CEOs and business leaders navigate a world of complex global challenges, sustainability is no longer optional but a business imperative. In this book, two sustainability leaders with decades of experience – Henrik Henriksson, CEO of Scania and Elaine Weidman Grunewald, Co-founder of the AI Sustainability Center, and former Chief Sustainability & Public Affairs Officer at Ericsson – offer a simple but powerful three-step model for leading an organization on a sustainability transformation journey that aims at big, audacious, world-changing goals. Honest about the dilemmas but bullish on the opportunities, the authors advise leaders on how to accelerate sustainability in their organizations told through a Swedish lens, where the country’s values and culture permeate the boardroom and the C-suite, bringing a unique clarity and conviction to leading with integrity. In practical insights gleaned from the authors’ own experience, the book takes leaders through the three phases of sustainability leadership: from establishing a solid foundation rooted in purpose, culture, values, principles and consistent, credible leadership, to integrating sustainability into the core business, and then to executing a vision that not only shifts the direction of the company but can change an entire industry, and even the world. Throughout the book, more than 25 interviews with other leading CEOs of Swedish companies as well as successful start-ups, investors, economists, and other experts illuminate the path to sustainability leadership from different perspectives. These are complemented by case studies describing how companies got it right – or turned themselves around after getting it very, very wrong. With this hands-on insiders’ guide, CEOs and C-suite leaders can take sustainability to the next level. This is the encouragement and inspiration business leaders need to move past incremental improvement at a time when exponential, world-changing action is more urgent than ever.

In Sustainable Leadership, Andy Hargreaves and Dean Fink address one of the most important and often neglected aspects of leadership: sustainability. The authors set out a compelling and original framework of seven principles for sustainable leadership characterized by Depth of learning and real achievement rather than superficially tested performance; Length of impact over the long haul, beyond individual leaders, through effectively managed succession; Breadth of influence, where leadership becomes a distributed responsibility; Justice in ensuring that leadership actions do no harm to and actively benefit students in other schools; Diversity that replaces standardization and alignment with diversity and cohesion; Resourcefulness that conserves and renews leaders' energy and doesn't burn them out; and Conservation that builds on the best of the past to create an even better future. This book is a volume in the Jossey-Bass Leadership Library in Education—a series designed to meet the demand for new ideas and insights about leadership in schools.

The Pursuit of Sustainable Leadership: Sustainable Leadership (SL) encompasses the broad roles and responsibilities of leaders that cut across the whole organization and the entire extended enterprise from horizon to horizon. The underpinnings of SL require strategic leaders and professionals to play leading roles in dealing with critical issues affecting business and people. This including resolving the related problems and challenges and participating in the development and deployment of sustainable solutions based on the full spectrum of needs and expectations of society, market spaces, and business environment. SL necessitates openness, inclusiveness, innovativeness, and fair mindedness. It requires strategic leaders to create an extraordinary vision and to fulfill their missions to develop, support, and promote the extended enterprises and the market spaces served by their businesses. Sustainable strategic leaders ensure that their organizations and enterprises are fully capable and responsive to external dimensions and market spaces and have the potential to be successful. They serve and support markets, customers, and stakeholders and provide them with solutions and successful outcomes. In addition, strategic leaders fulfill their broad responsibilities to society through positive actions to improve the social and economic fabric of the human world and to mitigate the negative impacts across all of the social, economic, and environmental aspects. The Pursuit of Sustainable Leadership (PSL) involves the ongoing learning and development of business leaders and students to become true strategic leaders who have the proper principles, philosophies, values, capabilities and perspectives for achieving sustainable success. True leaders are dedicated to their endeavors and never stop making transitions and transformations to higher levels of sophistication. The PSL is based on a learning the foundations of leadership, having the right principles, developing personal philosophies, using broad perspectives, adapting openness and honesty, engaging in continuous learning, embracing lifelong personal and professional development, and being a sustainable leader. The key to success involves acquiring new knowledge, seeking profound experiences, expanding one’s understanding of realities and possibilities, and developing positive mindset through demanding roles and responsibilities, interactive engagements and profound learning.
