Moody-Stuart's Responsible Leadership: Lessons from the Front Line of Sustainability and Ethics, which he bills as "part memoir, part confessional, part manifesto for leadership," provides a detailed view of these events and much more. It draws mainly on the author's 40-year career at Shell. Moody-Stuart grew up in Antigua, where his family had lived since the 17th century and was instrumental in the development of the island's sugar industry. He joined Shell in 1966 after earning his doctorate in geology at Cambridge, and worked for the company in 10 countries on his journey to becoming its managing director and chairman--posts he held until 2001.
The book, which bears my endorsement on its dust jacket, provides candid accounts of Moody-Stuart's dealings with prime ministers and dictators, colleagues and competitors, and investors and NGOs. This is an insider's view of the machinations within organizations as disparate as Shell and the United Nations, and it engages hot-button issues, such as top team remuneration, human rights abuses, and corruption, head-on.
But Moody-Stuart delays his account of how he awoke to the corporate sustainability agenda until the book's biographical coda.Read more ›
This is no ego driven auto-biography nor a one-sided view of a free-market fundamentalist who sees business as a panacea for the world’s problems. Instead it is a thoughtful and often self-deprecating critique with wisdom synthesized from a very successful 50 year career, particularly the last 20 years which saw him lead two global giants – Shell and Anglo American and sit on the Boards of many others including Accenture and HSBC. His own successes, failures and reflections on the power and limitations of private sector are shared openly and he draws out lessons learned and how his own views have evolved over time.
The books spans issues ranging from endemic corruption and dealing with Heads of State in somewhat unsavory regimes through to the challenges of rising inequality and how to address the negative impacts of climate change.Read more ›
I'm looking forward to MMS writing about his personal experiences living and working in the most amazing places in the world.
