Understanding “The New Leadership Imperative”

Convincing influencers that business leadership will set the agenda for the planet’s future can be difficult. Our situation is compounded by the fact that global change ultimately requires political power and will. It’s becoming increasingly clear that the influence of business is so pervasive that our and our planet’s future are completely intertwined with business.

Engaging & Actionable

The Leadership Circle keynote speakers focus on an essential and compelling agenda:

  • Our world needs leaders dedicated to creating a thriving future for global business and our sustainable collective welfare
  • The future requires leadership with the creative capacity to invent the future and the capability to navigate the delicate balance between short-term profitability and long-term common good
  • Leadership must evolve if we are to create a future different than the one we are now facing
  • Organizations will succeed when they significantly upgrade their inner “operating system” to be able to embody the kind of leadership that can create the envisioned culture

Audiences consistently give our speakers high marks for their dynamic and thoughtful approach to leadership. Contact us about having our keynote speakers present to your organization or at your next event.
