Mike Fiszer Associate Pro Vice-Chancellor of the Institute of Executive Education and Enterprise at Massey Business School writes~
The concept of the Triple Bottom Line was developed by John Elkington in the 1990’s. In the simplest terms, the TBL agenda focuses leaders not just on the economic value that they add, but also on the environmental and social value that they add – or destroy.
This raises many questions about the type – and scale – of leadership that will be needed to address these challenges in the New Zealand of the future. While the knowledge, competencies and skills needed by leaders are being explored by many institutions, there is no doubt this cutting edge evolution requires new thinking, behaviours and paradigms, and offers leader challenges and opportunities in all leader development activity.
