Sustainable development is one of the challenging issues across the globe with
diverse stakeholders such as government, publics, and nongovernment
organizations are forcing businesses to perform sustainably
Sustainable leadership stresses creation of the present and future profits for
an organization, in addition to enhancing the quality of life for all stakeholders
(McCann & Holt, 2010).
Furthermore, sustainable leaders focus on capacity building, sustainable
change and long-term results (Hallinger & Suriyankietkaew, 2018).
Organizational sustainable performance is achieve when the business remains
true to its purpose and values over time while navigating the changing business
landscape in a proactive and agile way
COVID-19 has already disrupted the way many businesses across the world
operate and force them to go remote; offices have shuttered, and commuting has
been put on pause. These shifts are proving effective in slowing the spread of the
virus (World Economic Forum, 2020)
Leaders have had to rise to the challenge of guiding their people through these
changes, and many are now settling into this new way of operating.
Leaders need to think about now is their role in avoiding the 'bounce-back'
effect of pollution spiking again after this crisis.
