BECOME A LEADER IN SUSTAINABILITY
Sustainable leadership is all about on the one hand understanding sustainability and on the other being a leader in driving sustainability. In order to achieve this we start at the beginning by briefly introducing key questions: What is sustainability? What are sustainability practices? Why should you care? What sustainable issues are related to your own area of interest?
The journey starts with an awareness through investigating what kind of a leader you are and letting you see different facets of your leadership.
We look at different perspectives using well known leadership theories to set your leadership style in context. Once the foundation is laid we can start practicing what we preach and confront the reality of our own leadership skills. During the course you will receive regular feedback from the tutor to unleash and develop your leadership skills. Throughout this continuous process, we are convinced that you will achieve great results which will stay with you for the rest of your life.
Am I a leader? What kind of leader can I be? What is needed to develop as a leader? What is sustainability? What is the connection between being a leader and sustainability?
Be an effective leader to change the world.
We believe you can lead to make the planet a better place to live and will help you focus your attention to reversing global warming.
