The Institute and the Factory: Business Leadership and Change in the Global South

by John Russell
Southern Cultures, Vol. 13, No. 4: Global South (2007)

"We can't lead this world for long by making people afraid. It simply is impossible to succeed while being afraid."

Business leaders and change has been an enduring theme since the proclaimed origin of the New South, now well over a century ago. Perhaps the global part is new, though the folks who work at Coca-Cola or Reynolds Tobacco would surely take issue with that. I am especially happy to take up this theme today because I think right now there’s a disconnect between business leadership and social change precisely when a new generation of business leaders can have something useful to say.
