Capsule course

The Honeybee practices

Our learning capsules cover a range of evidence-based topics that help leaders and managers achieve high performance while taking care of people and the planet.

This capsule explains the 23 “Honeybee” leadership practices that create a systemic, organisational leadership system. Honeybee leaders pursue a clear purpose, take a long-term view, operate ethically, and respect all stakeholders, including future generations, society, investors and the biosphere. This contrasts with unsustainable “Locust” practices.

Honeybee leadership practices explained

This capsule takes you on a deep dive into the sustainable form of leadership, known as the Honeybee approach. Honeybee leadership practices are proven to generate high performance, sustainability and resilience.

Here, Dr Gayle Avery explains each of the 23 evidence-based Honeybee practices using the Sustainable Leadership Grid to contrast them with unsustainable business-as-usual or “Locust” leadership. The philosophy behind Locust leadership is that the purpose of a business is to make quick profits for investors. 

Honeybee leaders see themselves as part of a wider community, and they seek to add value to all stakeholders in an ethical and transparent way over the long term.
