Environmental Social Governance
LION Leadership Institute ESG Certification Program builds on behavioral science and Neuroscience insights to offer an evidence-based approach to Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) in public and private industries. Environmental, social, and governance (ESG) refers to socially conscious organizational' standards for behavioral use.
Environmental criteria consider how a company safeguards the environment, including policies addressing organizational climate. Social standards examine how it manages relationships with employees, customers, and the communities where it operates. Governance involves leadership, pay, internal controls, and rights.
While there is increasing awareness of the lack of these issues in all facets of business, government, and non-profit organizations, LION is moving to change the landscape.
Our process starts with a Social Contract. This outlines rules, norms, and mutual understandings to help guide respectful group dialogues when the conversation is riddled with strong emotions, opposing opinions, and high stakes.
Once the contract is understood, we focus on four things:
The importance of observing ESG issues from your perspective (Attention)
Explaining how different groups of people may see those situations (Perception)
Helping people grow through understanding both their viewpoint and the perspective of others with different life experiences (Cognition)
Developing self-awareness/ through an Enneagram (Personality)
We provide an Enneagram personality system training where employees can start to uncover their natural strengths and superpowers concerning ESG in the workplace. The other steps create a foundation for leadership strategies, productive discussions, and activities moving forward.
The LION Institute’s ESG Program will implement all of these elements. The result will be a basis for learning, growth, and problem-solving. Instead of being stifled by tensions from diversity, your environment will nurture that quality and benefit from utilizing varied points of view.
