Organisational change expert Professor Lynda Gratton shows that it is now critical that corporations step up to play their role in the world by building inner resilience, actively anchoring themselves in their communities and supply chains, and leveraging their unique capabilities to address complex global challenges.
Rich in human creativity and endeavour, global corporations are uniquely placed to address escalating global challenges such as youth unemployment, income inequality and climate change.
Lynda Gratton, Professor of Management Practice at London Business School, maps out how bringing resilience to a fragile world can start with what happens inside a corporation – when intelligence and wisdom is amplified, emotional vitality enhanced and social connections harnessed. She explains how leaders can leverage this inner resilience to help solve global problems and how a corporation’s innovative scaling and mobilising and alliance building capabilities are unique tools for combating global ills.
