You and the CEO agree that the two of you will explore the Eco-leadership concepts within the context of FASTPACE history, current status, and vision before opening up discussions with the rest of the leadership team. You and the CEO agree that Western’s (2013) suggested reflection points are an excellent way to open dialogue.
Those points include:
- What does it mean that organizations are ecosystems within ecosystems?
- What are the advantages of distributing leadership throughout an organization?
- Reflect on how Eco-leadership works internally to support organizational change and, at the same time, looks outward, taking an environmental and social stance. These two positions are traditionally separated, but reflect on how these two activities are complementary and connected. (Western, 2013, p. 280)
