How to scale leadership for all

Leadership has been written about for thousands of years. Leadership is neither a role nor a status. Leadership is a mindset, a behavior, and quite challenging to define in the form of a fixed set of skills.

How to learn leadership?

How to adopt the mindset, the behavior, and develop the skills?

How to create the conditions to help others around you to develop their leadership?

Companies and Universities invest a lot of energy in building programs to develop leadership. Those programs benefit at least a part of the people lucky enough to be enrolled in them. How could we scale leadership development for all?

I believe that the combination of experiential learning, social learning, and formal learning, referred to as the 70-20-10 framework, is the ideal way to grow your leadership and help others do it.

The Emerging Leadership Network works on creating the conditions to allow leadership to emerge and reveal the potential of people.

In the session, I will share with you what we learned with the network so that you can grow your potential by doing and helping others do it.

So that you can use your leadership skills to serve the cause that matters to you.
