" You want us to do what?" coupled with the look of complete fear and followed by the declaration "She has to be kidding!" is typical within the first two minutes of my workshops. And it is purposeful.
Someone very wise said " If you cannot explain it to a 8 years old, then you did not understand it yourself". And personally I have taken this to heart and developed my own 2.0 version. Everything I need to learn, I personally go and develop a curriculum to teach the topic to youths. It…Continue

I know I am not the only person asking this question but if we are a fan of Covey and we "begin with the end in mind" , is it not true that both CSR and Corporate Social Entrepreneurship ( CSE) have a common end game of:
1. Addressing a societal concern or issue
2. Running a successful business with an entrepreneurial sustainable spirit

Our Foundation is new to the region. We were really in a bind a week or so ago when a planned fieldtrip went amock. We take students who go through our leadership program on a fieldtrip to a Socially Responsible company as part of our 'It is up to you to change the World" lesson. We desperately reached out to CSR Middle East and Maha came to our rescue giving us the…
Here’s the truth, we are not educating our youths to be leaders if we are not equipping them with the right questions and expectations of the corporate world. After all, they are the business owners, managers, employees etc. of the future. And no teacher or school can teach this in a classroom……….that is a fact.

The Growing Leaders Foundation had the distinct honour of doing several leadership workshops with teachers using CSR leadership trained volunteers before they left for their summer break.
During the three hour sessions, both the facilitator, volunteers and the teachers explored their unique gifts and talents in order to have a better understanding of “who am I” and “why am I here”, very important for teachers since they are the only profession that touches the future.

Your employees are your key asset and an obvious starting point for CSR efforts. Having an excellent community involvement programme is pointless if your employees are dissatisfied due to poor pay or conditions. Employees rate 'interesting and stimulating work'…Continue

It’s hard to find a major company that isn’t talking about, writing about or reporting on how they take their corporate social responsibility seriously. However, many companies make a common mistake of misinterpreting corporate philanthrophy for CSR activities.
