Watch three of our brain trust members explain why Leading Humans is needed.
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 has set off to find and formulate the leadership that is needed now and in the future.
The project includes a brain trust, journeys across the globe to knowledge hubs, co-creation and ongoing reporting to journals and newspapers. Part of the co-creation is our Movement which is open to anyone who wants to take part in our mission.
Leading Humans is founded and driven by Louise Orbesen. Read more about her and the rest of the team below.
Louise is the founder of Leading Humans. She is a consultant with more than 15 years of experience in management and strategy. Holding a master in Strategy, Organization and Leadership, she has taken the opportunity to apply her knowledge as a management consultant at McKinsey & Company, Boston Consulting Group, and her own consultancy ORBESEN. Through her exposure to executive decisions and strategies, Louise recognized the obstacles that current leadership has, and decided to do something about it. Her hope is to leave a lasting impact on the way we perceive leadership, and lead in general.
