In the second part of their discussion about Living Asset Stewardship, Dawna Jones and Jay Bragdon examine some examples of companies that do things differently and whose goals encompass more than a narrow focus on the bottom line.

As Jay explains, organisations that embrace the model of Living Asset Stewardship enjoy cultures that encourage learning and innovation – to the great benefit of all concerned.

They explore the lessons we can learn from companies such as Canon, Nokia and Toyota – notably that empowering individuals is a far more profitable course of action than command-and-control leadership.

In the first in a series of podcasts, Dawna Jones heard from Jay that Living Assets Stewardship encourages companies to care about more than just the bottom line and to prioritize the general health of the people, society, markets and the biosphere in which they operate. This means that companies that adhere to the model care about their employees' health and welfare, values and professional growth, trusting that the company's goals will be met if they are treated right.

The Evolutionary Provocateur bi-monthly show is for executives, managers, and supervisors (OR for leaders at all levels) who have noticed that it is not what you know but who you are that has the biggest impact.

Dawna Jones, the show's host, believes that by raising awareness and understanding we can make a quantum leap to a new level of innovation in business - but it has to be done collectively.

What better way to do it than by provoking the evolution of how you see yourself and your role!
