I wrote this as a comment to a really good post on LinkedIn that said it is time for change and we need to make the most of the opportunities this virus has unfortunately presented us with.
“Many people in the impact space are thinking (or is it hoping?) that we will see significant change come out of the current pandemic. My concern is that these conversations and aspirations will be shared amongst those of us already on that page. My question is – how can we make this so mainstream that we will bring on-board a whole new set of leaders, influencers, organisations and basically anyone else? The world was already changing albeit slowly. What can we all do to make our passion a reality across our communities, bringing the economy along with us? We must do more…”
Sitting back reflecting on what I wrote, I have to ask myself, what am I doing?
If I truly and passionately believe that business is an awesome resource for doing good, and have often stated that it’s so easy to do – what am I doing to share this belief? What am I doing to help businesses along this path?
It is up to all of us to get this message across the whole economy and sitting talking to ourselves isn’t the way to do it.
I’m an old fashioned introvert so anything that appears remotely self-promoting doesn’t come easy but maybe it’s time to stand up.
Time to put it out there in a post, LinkedIn, here I come
- I believe that my book is an easy guide to how businesses can do good – using normal business techniques.
- I’ve blogged about my thinking
- I’m always able and willing to talk to any business, person or group about this way of thinking.
Post coming up to broadcast what I can offer at this time.
What are you going to do?
