Global LBC Leadership Principles

 

Leadership within LBC is the ability to influence, motivate and empower each other to jointly strive towards the effectiveness and success of the LBC group.

At LBC, everybody is a leader. We are all responsible for developing our organization and each other in order to manage risks in our working environment and in the communities in which we operate. By doing this, we will ensure a sustainable future for LBC and all her stakeholders.

“I believe that, in particular the empowerment value, one of those LBC core values, is crucial to nurture leadership within our organization and to make sure we all grow as leaders.”

“The LBC Leadership Principles were determined by our LBC employees. The basis for these principles are the LBC values: Responsibility, Transparency, Integrity, Respect and Empowerment. I believe that, in particular the empowerment value, one of those LBC core values, is crucial to nurture leadership within our organization and to make sure we all grow as leaders. This will allow us to foster and develop the knowledge within the LBC Group, from operator to CEO, to lead us to sustainable success.”
