The immense challenges we face as a global community require a fundamental shift in our thinking.
The Global Leadership Academy creates spaces in which decision-makers from the fields of policy-making, business, research and civil society come together to look at global challenges from a completely different angle.
Based on its years of experience, the Global Leadership Academy has developed an effective approach to enable change on a personal, organisational and systemic level.
Our dialogue spaces enable knowledge sharing, connection and innovation dedicated to a particular societal challenge.
In a unique way, this approach addresses the intertwined relationship between leadership development of key change agents and the initiation of systemic change in organizations, networks and our societies.
