    Crafting a revolutionary business model for positive impact

    What does it look like when a company isn’t focused solely on profits? In a world where the traditional business model has long been profit-centric, this idea urges companies to redefine their purpose, extending their responsibility to people and the planet. This “net positive” approach calls for a broader vision, where the aim is to create substantial positive value that enriches lives, uplifts communities, and restores the environment.

    Being net positive means going beyond short-term gains and superficial corporate social responsibility initiatives; it asks businesses to genuinely embrace long-term thinking and commit to holistic positive impacts. It’s about serving multiple stakeholders – employees, customers, communities, and the planet – and partnering with them to bring about systemic change. In this transformative model, shareholder returns become a result of doing good, rather than the primary objective of the business.

    Of course, leadership plays a crucial role in transitioning to this innovative business model. It demands leaders who are courageous and purpose-driven, individuals who aren’t afraid to go against the grain to create a world that is inherently better. They’re leaders who, motivated by a profound sense of duty and purpose, are eager to use business as a vehicle for positive change.

    Take the example of the consumer goods company, Unilever. At Unilever, sustainability isn’t an afterthought; it’s intertwined with business growth. The CEO, a champion of the net positive model, eliminated quarterly reporting to stave off short-term pressures and make room for long-term, meaningful initiatives. Similarly, Yvon Chouinard, founder of clothing brand Patagonia, built a highly successful enterprise grounded in environmental protection and steadfast values, demonstrating that profitability and responsibility can coexist harmoniously.

    John Replogle, who chose purpose over profit, transitioned from the prosperous beer industry to lead brands like Burt’s Bees and Seventh Generation – companies renowned for their sustainable ethos. For these individuals, purpose is a compass; it grants meaning and fuels perseverance through challenges, akin to how psychiatrist Victor Frankl found hope and meaning amid the horrors of Nazi concentration camps.

    In essence, adopting a net positive model isn’t merely about mitigating negative impacts or about compliance; it’s about proactively contributing to a better world. It invites you to envisage business as a catalyst for good, instigating a ripple effect of positive change, fortified by leaders who view purpose as their North Star, guiding their journey towards meaningful, enduring value for all.

    So, how does a leader do this? That’s what you’ll learn in the next section.

    Ich bin begeistert. Ich liebe Bücher aber durch zwei kleine Kinder komme ich einfach nicht zum Lesen. Und ja, viele Bücher haben viel bla bla und die Quintessenz ist eigentlich ein Bruchteil.

    Genau dafür ist Blinkist total genial! Es wird auf das Wesentliche reduziert, die Blinks sind gut verständlich, gut zusammengefasst und auch hörbar! Das ist super. 80 Euro für ein ganzes Jahr klingt viel, aber dafür unbegrenzt Zugriff auf 3000 Bücher. Und dieses Wissen und die Zeitersparnis ist unbezahlbar.

    Extrem empfehlenswert. Statt sinnlos im Facebook zu scrollen höre ich jetzt täglich zwischen 3-4 "Bücher". Bei manchen wird schnelle klar, dass der Kauf unnötig ist, da schon das wichtigste zusammen gefasst wurde..bei anderen macht es Lust doch das Buch selbständig zu lesen. Wirklich toll
