Businesses play a crucial role in tackling the challenges of our times, such as climate change. To enhance their effectiveness in this arena, they must become more curious to develop the innovations we require, as well as more eager to adapt their behaviors accordingly. Today’s aging leadership structures can hinder this. Striving towards intergenerational leadership is key to overcoming these issues and unlocking competitive advantage by enhancing businesses’ capacity for renewal.
Addressing challenges like climate change and biodiversity loss will require technical innovations. As such, a strong curiosity for unearthing new approaches is key. But just as crucial is that we are willing, even eager, to change our beliefs and behaviors accordingly.
