Beyond Leadership Programme

Posted: Friday 31 October 08, 2.39pm GMT

Beyond Leadership is an innovative training programme in corporate leadership for sustainability. Much is being said about how business can become more sustainable but without a profound change in today’s leaders understanding, attitudes and engagement, sustainability will remain just another fade concept. What is required is a leadership programme that challenges participants’ understanding of what sustainable business really means, encourages them to learn from real world cases and raises their leadership skills and capabilities in ways that make change effectively happen in an organisation. Beyond Leadership takes business leaders out of their comfort zone and encourages them to think innovative about new models, new technologies and unexpected solutions that will raise the corporations’ sustainability game.

The Programme

Beyond Leadership’s main objective is to promote sustainability into business practices by equipping leaders with the knowledge and insights about key sustainable development issues and enhance the personal leadership skills required to promote organisational change towards sustainability. The learning process is built in a way that participants are encouraged to reframe social and environmental issues not just as risks but also as sizeable opportunities. LEAD has delivered two sessions of this programme in partnership with LEAD Brazil and LEAD India and partner organisation Future Considerations.The programme is a fine balance between leadership development and sustainability and is structured around a three phase leadership journey.

The programme has been such a success that often major banks and multinational companies have expressed interest in LEAD doing something similar for them. LEAD therefore decided to expand its Beyond Leadership programme and take it to other countries where we have a presence. To do so, we need to know more about the projects LEAD Fellows are involved as well as your interest in hosting the programme. If you are working in a field project and would like to be part of Beyond Leadership, please email .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address) . This information will be valuable when designing a programme or discussing a proposal with a potential partner.

Equally, if you are working in the private sector and believe your organisation could benefit from this kind of training, please contact .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address) at LEAD International or your National Programme Director directly to discuss how LEAD can design a Beyond Leadership programme for you.

Hoping to hear from you!
