Economic Slowdown: A Business and Social Opportunity for Responsible Leaders
Colin Coulson-Thomas

An economic slowdown can have positive as well as negative consequences, especially in relation to the environment, biodiversity and global warming. It creates opportunities as well as problems. The responses of boards and companies can vary. Some can be more socially and environmentally responsible than others. Boards can review corporate purpose, priorities and direction, initiate and/or accelerate transition to more sustainable operations, activities, offerings and business models, and take steps to ensure people are helped and enabled to undertake transition and transformation journeys. There are relatively quick and affordable ways of providing support that can benefit people, organizations and the environment.

Sustainability Leadership: Linking Theory and Practice
Wayne Visser and Polly Courtice

The paper aims to create a clearer understanding of the nature of sustainability leadership and how it can contribute to transformational change. It does this by locating sustainability within the leadership literature, defining the concept of sustainability leadership, and presenting a model of sustainability leadership in practice. The model was tested with a sample of senior business leaders and refined in line with their feedback. The model presents insights on sustainability leadership in three areas: context, individual characteristics, and actions. The model is illustrated using quotes from senior business leaders that are focused on sustainability in their organizations.

BRICS Workplace Comparisons: Influence of Chinese and South African Cultural Orientations
Ying Zhou and Kurt April

For international enterprises, the ability to adaptively manage people from different cultural backgrounds is key to their success, even their survival. In the light of China's 'Belt and Road' strategy, this paper looked specifically at the Sino-South Africa cultural similarities and differences, underpinned by context-specific beliefs and values emerging from Southern African and East Asian philosophical societal/workplace traditions. Using survey data collected from 644 Zulu and Chinese, non-managerial employees, this paper compared Ubuntu and Confucianism cultural values with reference to the six-dimensional model established by Hofstede (2011). The findings revealed that there were important differences in five out of six of Hofstede's dimensions. Compared with the Chinese group, the Zulu group displayed less 'power distance', 'collectivism', and 'femininity', and were more 'uncertainty averse', 'short-term-oriented', and 'restrained'. This paper contributes to the cross-cultural management and human resources literature by comparing two BRICS countries' societal cultures that have been neglected in research.

Senior Executives @ Risk: Avoiding the Pitfalls of Success!
Michael Walton

Continuing success as an executive cannot be guaranteed, and this paper outlines some of the challenges and traps awaiting those in positions of organizational power and influence. At its heart, this paper is about alerting executives to counterproductive and toxic patterns of behavior that may have come to characterize them in the positions of authority-behaviors that will become self-defeating and dysfunctional and will lead to derailment and failure. The critical importance of examining executive behavior 'in context' is stressed.
