Let’s build a future of
great leadership together
A Clear Purpose
In the last one hundred years, people have been led by a tune that spins off from compositions of Taylor and Ford T. The overarching themes have been efficiency, value creation and extrinsic motivation. This kind of leadership has been employed throughout many years with tweaks and upgrades, but it will not work in the future.
Humans seek purpose, freedom and impact to a degree we have never witnessed before. This is due to technological, climate and economic developments. Today, many companies have overarching purposes that go beyond growth and profits, but we are still far from leading humans in the best possible way. Leading Humans have set off to find and formulate the leadership that is needed now and in the future.
The project will unfold over the next year. It includes a brain trust, journeys across the globe to knowledge hubs, a co-creation site and ongoing reporting to journals and newspapers.

Journeys to knowledge hubs
I will speak to front movers within brain research, digital technology, leadership, business and military forces from Copenhagen, London, New York/Boston, Singapore and LA/SF.
“It’s about showing up in a way that’s calm and clear, confident and kind”
“We need to go back to the basics. We need to be human again“
“Cultivate the growth mindset”
“Create a space where the awkward things can be said“
“By creating echo chambers, technology is driving the polarization”

“Successful leaders must be accessible”
We want to hear your take on this month’s question
“What leadership do we need in the future?”
Steering committee, inspiration and driver. The committee has seven members that
represent brain research, digital, leadership, business, and military.
The Danish newspaper Børsen recently wrote an article about Leading Humans.
The article eventually became subject of much debate on social media and a lot of people became engaged in the discussion.
