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 offset includes a brain trust, journeys across the globe to knowledge hubs, a co-creation site and ongoing reporting to journals and newspapers.
