An immersion in values
I was part of the teaching faculty, organised by Tell Muenzing and his colleagues, at the GIZ summer school on responsible business, these past fews days, in Bonn. GIZ is a key part of the German Government’s contribution to sustainable development around the world.
At the end of the first day, I did a speech in Bonn’s Altes Rathaus, apparently following in the footsteps of Charles de Gaulle and Queen Elizabeth II. The high point of the trip, however, came with two sessions done by Phil Clother of the Barrett Values Centre. We have worked with them before–and I really like their way of capturing people’s values and helping them work out to drive change both in themselves and in their organisations.
It was also great to see Professor John Ruggie, who led the UN charge on business and human rights a while back. Lovely man–and great presentation.
