Nutrition, Self-Leadership and Compassion
The Great Resignation, the #MeToo social activism movement, the global economic crisis, the digitization of work and more importantly the destruction of our natural habitat has brought compassionate, authentic leadership approaches to the forefront of discussions on the changing shape of sustainable business models (Bracchio, 2020). The new entrants in the economy both as workforce and as consumers are the approximately 75 million Generation Z-ers. This demographic cohort stands up for its values, is passionate about causes, seeks relationships based on trust and transparency, chooses to work in ethical, servant environments, prefers diversity and choses flexible, hybrid working arrangements and demands a higher than average paid time off (Gabrielova and Buchko, 2021). Organisations are therefore faced with a twofold challenge. The first one is how to retain loyal customers and the second, how to keep their human capital engaged. Doing business is no longer simply about profitability but it is about maintaining the delicate equilibrium of long-term win-win sustainable outcomes.
