“Everyone is a stakeholder at some level, and all stakeholders are important. We should consider all stakeholders as we lead – those we serve, those we lead, the powerless, the silenced, the planet, and all of humanity.”
I shared this insight in a previous post – it was an aha moment from a Tweetchat I guest-hosted on Leading With Ethics. To reflect on where you are in the journey to leading with the mindset that “everyone is a stakeholder at some level,” explore the answers to these important questions:
- How am I adding value for customers, employees and partners?
- What ripples am I creating on the global landscape?
- If everyone followed my lead, would they be showing that all stakeholders are important, regardless of who they are or where they live?
- How well do I consider the interests of stakeholders who aren’t at the table, including the planet?
- Have I explored and conquered my own “inner terrain” well enough to manage my biases so that they don’t impact my leadership?
To accomplish the ideal of considering all stakeholders in even our smallest decisions, we’ll have to do more than just imagine the possibilities. We’ll need to do the work.
