Topic:  Conscious leadership – the new frontier?

The 2017 World Economic Forum in Davos released a compact calling for Responsible and Responsive leadership. Led by the CEO of Philips Electronics Frans Van Houten, it calls for a new step and a new higher purpose in leadership focused on the greater good. Charities are generally blessed with a clear sense of purpose and an underpinning passion that ignites and serves that purpose.

However the new frontier for leadership calls on leaders to rethink their business models and leverage the power of purpose to build increased resilience, responsiveness and unity.

The session will explore:
• How do we ground a deep sense of purpose into something that can be sustainably realised?
• The qualities of inner power and leadership that inform our capacity and resilience to operate in a world of uncertainty and rapid change
• What it means to take a more conscious and holistic perspective and the implications for leadership practices and organisational working
