A Note in Brief from Lavinia
Over the last few days, my tracking conversations and news through JustMeans.com has given me some clear ideas on the relevance of the WorkEcology Thought Leadership and how I am integrating a new system of thought to add to it related to all my writing on a Culture of Change
and others on JustMeans.com provided editorial news analysis of a quality that I could find no where else.
The quality of analysis and news on Davos and other articles exceeded other social media outlets, I subscribe to. With this analysis and some private analysis sent to me from a leading financial thought leader in CSR and BioPharm, I believe I am on track for a new type of thought leadership that I can teach and write about so the average person in any locale can understand.
The Sustainability movement (as opposed to the CSR movement) is now showing significant success in investment analysis through this economic meltdown. This news report from World Business Council for Sustainable Development by SocialFunds.com shows that 65% of sustainable investment mutual funds outperformed other funds.
So to catch people's attention about these type of investments, I believe we are going to have to see more provide datarom outside the Fortune 2000 global marketplace and its supply chain, e.g. Cisco. According to Fortune Magazine, Cisco's revenues in were $557B (March 2000) and recent report is they are at $132B for a loss of $425B.
I believe it is now even more important to set a data point for mid cap, start ups, non profits to begin to look at why adoption of a new thought leadership that is linked to the bottom line and balanced locally and globally is so key. I have just come upon a string of energy businesses where we can show sophisticated methods of thought in practice rather than going about business in the context of a core group pattern local to culture or carved out of ownership determination for gain.
This makes the course, Foundations of Portfolio Work, a greater value now to other cultures and the non profit world. The course will guide individuals to form a foundation practice of learning based upon a landscape view of practice within local communities. Even if your employment source is through a corporation, all workers need to learn to rally their resources through social networks. Mechanical responses through supply chain don't work in the emerging system of ecological economic practices. The Earth Charter Principle of Exercising Precaution begin with local communities that have learned to operate in with a global perspective.
