Turn your values into virtues

One of my favourite writers and authors is Thomas L. Friedman. His 14th May 2010 blog A Question From Lydia raised my awareness for two reasons. Firstly Thomas is in Greece and the question from Lydia he saw on a burnt down facade of Marfin Bank In what kind of a world will I grow up? Lydia, age 10.

And secondly this paragraph:

So more and more of us are behaving by, what Seidman calls, “situational values”: I do whatever the situation allows. Think… Continue

Human Beings as part of the Environment

World Environment day celebrated on the 5th of June provides yet another opportunity to reflect on the man-nature relationship- it is necessarily dialectical? Does it always imply an inherent conflict? Can one perceive of nature, environment, ecology without human beings in it?

Keith Bosak in his study of Nanda Devi Biospehere Reserve notes that much of the debate concerning nature and environment focuses on problems of ecosystem management and biodiversity conservation rather…

Spin and Story, two different things entirely

Recently I drove past the BP service station where I normally do business and went to a competitor. In the process I wondered how many people are doing the same, even if unconsciously?

BP’s story of beyond petroleum signaled an intent at least that the giant company was different to the rest and prepared to create a future without oil. Of course because of the Gulf of Mexico disaster, BP’s story now looks like spin and their reputation is in… Continue

Christine Bader on Responsible Business and Governance: Polycentricity and Inter System Coherence in Business and Human Rights Governance Frameworks

One of the great insights of recent efforts to develop transnational governance frameworks for business has been the need to broaden the understanding of sources of governance

beyond the state. The territorially bounded state may remain central to

any effort to extend governance frameworks to economic enterprises that

operate across states. However, it is no longer possible to think of

states as the only source of governance or the law of…

Cisco - a fine example of what a good corporate citizen looks like

Recently I had the privilege of speaking at the Key Media HR Summits in Singapore and Hong Kong. In Singapore I followed Jodi Krause, The Director for Organization Effectiveness for Cisco, who spoke on Engaging Talent for Greater Productivity. As my talk immediately followed Jodi’s, with no break for the audience, I was in the wings for her presentation which I thoroughly enjoyed. In fact it was uncanny how many times Jodi proved with real evidence what I was about to talk about… Continue

The Impossible Act of Targeting: Poverty Estimates and Food Security

The recent decision of the central government to set up a central food security fund to compensate the Below Poverty Line (BPL) beneficiaries of the Targeted Public Distribution system (TPDS) who fail to get the proposed mandatory 25 kgs of wheat or rice per family a month at a subsidized rate of Rs 3 a kg has again raised the question regarding the whole idea of identifying those below the poverty line and those above it.

The issue has always been contentious and even today…
