Sandra Rupp's Davos CEO Pledge Diary (Yin/Yang)

Archive for the ‘Corporate Social Responsibility’ Category

“We cannot choose between growth & sustainability. We must have both.” UNILEVER CEO

“Unilever and CEO Paul Polman are the crown jewel of the consumer products industry.” Sandra Rupp, Executive Coach in FT comments (she now has viewers in 100 countries)

“Introducing the priceless Sandra Rupp.” FT Alphaville

 

Each morning I wake up to my Financial Times alerts on my smart phone to see headlines about my favorite CEOs. About ten days ago, I almost fell out of bed….There was a story in FT Alphaville (founded by the talented Paul Murphy) about Unilever stock and something going on with Kraft Heinz. As a world’s top business thinker, the first thing I did was head for my laptop and Twitter where I can read headlines of 25+ global publications. Next I was on the phone to a friend at a top hedge fund in New York asking him to tell me more about private equity firm 3G. Interestingly Warren Buffett helped my Dad find his CEO job back in the ’70s. I had even consulted to companies like Cadbury. I had to work fast, I had to take my comments to the FT, and I had to get creative because CEO Paul Polman and his visionary Sustainable Living Plan are worth everything we’ve got! He is my favorite CEO in the world, an innovator like no one else: irreplaceable and highly regarded by other Davos CEOs (and Executive Coaches). And the rest is Herstory: Yes FT Alphaville, Sandra Rupp, CEO Paul Polman and even Sir Martin Sorrell at WPP helped save the most historically important & sustainable company in the world: UNILEVER. And now I want to work with CEO Paul Polman and CMO Keith Weed to communicate the importance of The Sustainable Living Plan to investment managers around the globe. When we look back on business history, I believe we will see this as a KEY turning point for shareholders, consumers & employees. And I look forward to many more years ahead for Unilever’s highly talented CEO Paul Polman who was successful in fending off a takeover in record time with a little help from the many people who believe in him. Watch my video for the EXCITING STORY: Paul, let’s take everyone from Sustainable to Flourishing!

How would you feel if CEOs told you & your family How to Vote? For me, it is an alarming trend.

UPDATE: After this post, CEOs have cut back on telling employees and customers how to vote, so Sandra is buying Unilever’s TRESemme and Dove products again 🙂

I read a post in Harvard Business Review about concerns with CEOs trying to influence how people vote  There is even a PR research study on it. (Update: since this post there are articles in The Washington Post & the Naples Daily News on why “Consumers aren’t buying CEO Politics”). To me Politics, Business & Religion are three very different realms, and they should not tell each other what to do. I am very concerned by a trend I am seeing among a handful of mostly male Davos CEOs and today, on the day that the UK Votes on #Brexit I am speaking up. The Economist had a cover post recently about how people’s Freedom of Speech is under attack (even on social media) and how it is time to speak up. It is one thing if a CEO is asked by an employee or friend what their view is on a political or religious topic. It is quite another for CEOs to be tweeting or appearing in front of the media and telling employees and customers how to vote (one American banker threatened to take jobs away from the UK if they voted #Brexit and a California CEO has bullied US Governors, a female University President & NC’s Moms). Women executives have asked me to discuss this topic. WATCH my BREXIT VIDEO to UK-based Unilever CEO (he is one of my favorite CEOs but even he’s been tweeting how to vote on Brexit to his employees & customers (70% Women). They own Lever, Lipton, Dove, Axe, Hellmann’s & TreSemme. I highlight 5 Things people might want to know about Democracy. For the time being, I won’t be able to use their products as much as I really like his work on sustainability. It goes against my conscience. CLICK TO VIEW:

UNILEVER CEO Paul Polman is one of the world’s most admired CEOs for his leadership on Sustainability. IMRAN KHAN of Pakistan is one of the most influential people in the world per Time Magazine and the Asia Society.  Executive & Anchor Sandra Rupp was placed on the THINKER50 Guru Radar List for the world’s top business thinkers & aims to interview both of them on camera. Here she explains why she has chosen two of her favorite Davos Men to help her get more Doves to Davos.

In terms of your Leadership style, are you a Hawk or a Dove? Did you know that it is the Highly Sensitive of any species that are the key to survival? Do you have the gene for High Sensitivity or High Sensation Seeking? Some of the most dynamic CEOs and Leaders in the world I have met have both genes, because they know how to take risks but also manage risk. Click here to take both Tests. Read this post by Dr. Elaine Aron at www.hsperson.com  to learn more. I am a Highly Sensitive Leader (a Dove), and I believe we need more Doves at World Economic Forum to help tackle the most pressing issues of the decade including Income Inequality, the Gender Gap and Terrorism. I am inviting Paul Polman, Imran Khan & other leaders to help me.

LEADERS I am delighted to release my THINKERS 50 Video Message for 2015. In a world of economic, business and political change, Management Thinkers and Executive Coaches are increasingly in top demand. Here I share my advice to the world’s Billionaires & Davos CEOs.

MANY THANKS CEOs, Editors, Reporters, Viewers:

“Introducing the priceless Sandra Rupp.” FINANCIAL TIMES Alphaville

“In awe of Davos Woman, Sandra Rupp.” @FastCompany reporter

“The next Barbara Walters.” “Best legs on YouTube.” Subscribers to YouTube Channel

UPDATE: Soon after this post, Unilever’s CEO @PaulPolman joined Twitter, modified his website & can now read Sandra’s Tweets directly (click to follow their tweets). He also added another lady to his CEO Team. STAY TUNED

“What message is new Dove Ad really sending to our daughters?” Telegraph

“Dove’s ‘Beautiful or Average’ Ad: does it do more harm than good?” ETonline

“Dove is Really Reaching with this New Stunt that Forces Women to Label Themselves ‘Average’ or ‘Beautiful'” Fast Company magazine (click to view)

BOTTOM LINE: I have talked openly about how much I admire Unilever CEO’s Sustainable Living Plan. If I am appointed to his CEO Team, I will have more choices for Dove doors: including Kind-Hearted, Feminine & Fearless. Dear Ad Age & Sir Martin: he needs a female Chief Creative for Dove. The one positive thing about the Ad was they took my advice & filmed women around the globe! xo Here’s my new video offering to work with Paul as Chief Creative Advisor on Dove & other brands. Click to View: 

Dove has Women Walk through Doors Labeled ‘Beautiful’ or ‘Average’….” Beauty Editor Arabelle Sicardi of BuzzFeed

Dove’s New Choose Beautiful Ad Sparks Online Backlash.” Nicole Arce in Tech Times

ORIGINAL POST: Just imagine this scenario: a male CMO & male SVP of Brand, a male Chief Creative Officer, and even male Directors of an Ad Agency hatch a plan to have the Ad Team fly to five cities and film women walking into office buildings or malls for a female soap product. But first they plan to put up two huge signs: on top of Door #1 is a sign that says BEAUTIFUL. On top of Door #2 is the sign AVERAGE. And then they film the majority of the women walking through the AVERAGE Door! Wow you can’t even make this stuff up…I really need to help CEO Paul Polman promote the positive self-esteem in his Sustainable Living Plan. As some of you know, I helped him clean up the Axe Ads (see Videos to Paul on YouTube), but now I’d like him to hire me to give Dove a Creative Makeover. As I pointed out in my prior Dove post, Beautiful is a man’s word (click to see more). But there’s more that Unilever’s CEO needs to know: the BuzzFeed Beauty Editor mysteriously had her critical Dove post temporarily deleted – and then restored when BuzzFeed’s Editor-in-Chief admits he blew it after a Slate article. So why did he temporarily delete the post? Last time I checked PR Firm Edelman had been contacted, but there was no comment – Richard & Sir Martin please give me a call. Because I suspect Paul will be siding with me – because top women Execs, Journalists & customers are worn out being told we have to think like men. Calgon take me away ~

For those who have followed me on Twitter and YouTube, you know that I have admired CEO Paul Polman’s and Unilever’s Sustainable Living Plan (click to view) , which I have recommended to my fellow THINKERS 50 colleagues. I really like Unilever’s broad definition of Sustainability which includes health, well being and self esteem. On that note, last year I had an issue with the Unilever Axe & Lynx Ads. Watch this follow up video to Paul, because I have a piece of AthenaPhoto good news to share: hint: maybe I can resume buying TRESemme Hair Products again (also owned by Unilever)….It took us just 4 months to get Women into Augusta with tweets & a video to Augusta Members and about 4 months to get the YouTube Axe Channel revised! How long will it take us to get 30% Women at Davos & invest in the largest economic opportunity worldwide? STAY TUNED. DAVOS WOMAN IS READY TO ROLL….
