Three Visions of Leadership

Talk "Leading teams remotely" by Manuel Pistner
Remote work requires a new kind of leadership. A kind of leadership that can free us from outdated economic practices that are bad for us and the planet.

Talk "Sharing leadership in a circle" by Anne Chloé Destremau
We need to build communities in which everybody takes responsibility. For this to work we need to move away from hierarchical forms of leadership.

Talk "Leading responsibly and sustainably" by William Moore
Many of us live our lives as victims of circumstance. True leadership comes from taking ownership of our own lives.

Panel Discussion with all three speakers and an interactive Q&A session
The current situation has made clear that not only is change needed, it is also possible. This goes for protecting our health as well as for protecting our environment and builder a fairer and freer future. All we need now is to grasp the opportunity. Our three panelists share their visions of the kind of leadership that is now required.
