"Today we need leaders who listen"
After the talk, we had the opportunity of keep some important insights about leadership:
What we've talked about:
00:16 What is your concept of leadership?
00:31 Which kind of leadership the world needs today?
0:48 How do you keep yourself connected to reality?

Leadership Talks is a series of bi-weekly meetings between our students and leaders of innovation and social impact.
These talks are one of the many activities that are part of the training for our young re-solutionaries. We believe in a collaborative education that focuses on creating connections between people.
