I teach, coach, and mentor an adaptive, value-driven, and values-based approach to product, people, and personal leadership.
Lots of words - but what does it mean?
#Adaptive - Using the pillars of empiricism - transparency, inspection, and adaptation to discover and deliver what is valuable.
#valuedriven - A focus on a Win-6™ strategy for creating value that optimizes for all stakeholder groups - customers, employees, investors, suppliers, community, and the environment.
#valuesbased - Led by purpose and the values an individual or organization espouses.
🤔 Sometimes the purpose and values of an individual or organization are in conflict with our current (linear) economic model.
So, here is another model for your consideration.
It is one that captures my curiosity and attention.
The circular economy is based on three principles, driven by design:
1️⃣ Eliminate waste and pollution
2️⃣ Circulate products and materials (at their highest value)
3️⃣ Regenerate nature
In contrast to taking materials from the Earth, making products from them, and eventually throwing them away as waste.
💫 The circular economy is about minimizing waste in the first place.
I think it is a pretty compelling and purposeful value proposition.
