AN ESG ECONOMY: WHAT’S IN IT FOR ME?

An ESG Economy: What’s in it for me?   As I observed more and more of my dialogues of engagement in 2018, and in anticipation of massive geopolitical shocks in the region of South East Asia, and peering into the horizon of 2030, I am now beginning to ask myself a question that perhaps I…

The Kind Weaver

THE KIND WEAVER http://www.thekindweaver.wordpress.com is birthed, emerges today, as A Sustainable Innovation of Bilberries Blue Group. Since my Life Coaching session with Ms Bernadette Cenzon, whom I met at pottery class, during the summer of 2015, (perhaps it was spring, but it makes no difference, because we are in the tropics, and it is always, fortunately,…

The Silent Dancer in a Pregnant Pause

Bilberries Blue is developing a platform called The Silent Dancer in A Pregnant Pause. The title is a haiku which serves as a reminder of the embrace of the harmony of ideas and applications in nature and human nature juxtapositions, rational, non-rational, concrete, symbolic, articulable, inarticulable expressions. It is an inter-disciplinary platform which empathises, investigates,…

Creativity

Creativity for me has turned so many meanings and purposes that I wonder if a courageous sense of open goodness is where I am riding in. Creativity isn’t about something new; often it is about something ancient that we have forgotten. Creativity isn’t actually about the future either, because the future emerges from what we…

Leadership

I have been examining this for longer than I am even aware. I used to think leadership is about capabilities. Then I thought leadership is about directing. And then I thought leadership is about empathy, care and giving. Then I found out leadership is about empowerment, enablement and nurturing. Suddenly, I get all excited, and…

Human Resource

Human Resource is about people. It is less so about managing people, but truly desiring to support and enable relevant market skills and whole-being development. It took me a long time to figure out why a status-conscious or rank-conscious or even a performance-based paradigm would not sustain. The heart of humanity is one. Each of us…

Strategy

Strategy is an interesting idea. I have wondered for a long time what is the divide – between strategy and strategy execution, between management and staff, between mission and processes, between budget and actual, between shareholders and the people who make up the corporation. And so on. I wonder if anyone notices that life is…

Sustainability

It was very strange. I almost got confused between strategy and sustainability. Perhaps there really isn’t any difference. The strategy, any strategy, afterall, ultimately, is to sustain, isn’t it? If you don’t sustain, you are out of a business, a job, a mission, an application of an idea or purpose or reason, and well, maybe,…

Risk Management

The enterprise risk management framework is reduced to this acronym GRRRTAL. Yes it is a frustrating exercise but well worth the self-examination, facilitation and timely responses. In short, it is about: G – Goals 3Rs – Risk Appetite, Risk Categories, Rank Risks 4Ts – Tolerate, Transfer, Treat, Terminate A – Take Action L – Learning…

Corporate Governance

I don’t know why, but I begin with Corporate Governance. Governance isn’t at all about legalism. It is about culture. I hold just three principles amidst navigating all the codes. It is this: Integrity Competence Trust. And it is held by every single person in the organisation, corporately structured or otherwise. It is held by…
