About the Book

The traditional corporate leadership playbook your grandparents wrote no longer works. This book from one of the world’s top executives is a new leadership paradigm for resilience and agility in a rapidly changing world.

In the last twenty years, the world has faced dramatic changes: climate change, economic downturns, a worldwide pandemic, geopolitical upheaval, terrorism, and the collapse of various industries. It will now require an overhaul in order to handle these global tectonic shifts.

This book is a must-read guide for aspiring leaders in various sectors, who are keen on not only ensuring current success, but protecting the planet’s future for everyone. Andrew Liveris, former Chairman and CEO of The Dow Chemical Company, presents a variety of powerful tools that will enable you to tackle any problem quickly and responsively, with an eye to creating a more equitable, sustainable future.

In these pages, you will learn how to:

  • Create and use metrics that quantify the positive impact on all members of society.
  • Collaborate with scientists, politicians, regulators, corporate boards, and other stakeholders to create effective policies that work.
  • Broaden your company’s focus to include both long-term sustainability and short-term profitability without sacrificing the former to gain the latter.
  • Strengthen local communities via corporate investment and advocacy for the improvement of amenities and services for all.
  • Hire team members who fully and proactively support strategies to improve the world and its future.
  • Become a sought-after advisor on how to respond quickly and decisively to uncertainties.

Andrew Liveris has four decades of global leadership experience in business, government, academia, and civic society. His book is a powerful tool for any aspiring leader.
