Why is embracing Social Value essential for a leader?

Nowadays, social value and leadership are closely related because influential leaders can create a positive social impact through their decisions and actions. Leaders who prioritise social value often consider the broader impact of their decisions beyond financial returns and actively seek to create value for stakeholders such as employees, customers, and the community.

Embracing Social value can help businesses and leaders to build trust and credibility with their followers. Leaders who prioritize social value understand that their actions and decisions directly impact their community, society, and the environment. It showed that they prioritize common interests over personal gain, and strive to create positive change for everyone.

When a leader truly values social impact, they are more likely to be seen as authentic and trustworthy. They are able to inspire and motivate the stakeholders around them to work together towards a common goal. They are also better equipped to navigate complex social issues and make ethical decisions that benefit everyone.

Furthermore, leaders who prioritize social value are more likely to attract and retain talent who share their values. Employees want to work for a company or follow a leader who is making a positive impact on society. This creates a sense of purpose and meaning in their work, leading to increased productivity and job satisfaction.
