"Skin In The Game" Strategies Align With An Organization-Business Values & Mission Statement

"Management is doing things right; leadership is doing the right things." ~ Peter Drucker

"Educationists should build the capacities of the spirit of inquiry, creativity, entrepreneurial and moral leadership among students and become their role model." ~ Abdul Kalam

"Be strong, but not rude; Be kind, but not weak; Be bold, but not bully; Be humble, but not timid; Be proud, but not arrogant." ~ Zig Ziglar

Whenever I think about leaders, not managers, in mediumโ€”to large organizations and businesses, non-financial characteristics come to mind. These characteristics motivate ethical leaders to do good things in society and make a positive difference.

Leaders of medium to large companies often have a more prominent public profile, which creates a sense of accountability since their reputation is tied to the company's performance and ethical practices.

Participating in community initiatives and charitable endeavours is a show of goodwill and a concrete demonstration of a leader's commitment to social responsibility. This commitment, in turn, enhances the company's image and reputation, fostering a positive perception among stakeholders.

'Skin in the game' strategies are not just a matter of financial investment but a reflection of the leader's dedication to the company's core values and mission.

This alignment confirms that the strategies are not just about profit, but about the long-term sustainability and success of the company.

Leader performance can be assessed based on innovation, product development, and market dominance.

Leaders who uphold strong ethical standards and execute good corporate governance practices foster trust with stakeholders.

Leaders play a critical role in shaping company culture. Aligning incentives with creating a positive, collaborative, and purpose-driven culture benefits employees and the company's long-term success.

These non-financial elements of "skin in the game" motivate leaders to prioritize long-term sustainability and the well-being of all stakeholders rather than just focusing on short-term profits.
