Institute for Values-Based Leadership
A values based approach is emerging among leaders around the world as a pathway to a more stable and sustainable human future. A focus on values takes us to a level of awareness beyond the short term, and enables insights into meaning and purpose. We are being challenged to consider more deeply our current priorities, to understand the long term consequences of decisions across the domains of commerce, governance and community.
Values-based leaders have the ability to see further, to perceive the whole, rather than just the parts, and to have the courage for new conversations that broaden the horizons of those with whom they interact.
The work of values based leaders requires personal and professional strength and clarity that is enhanced and sustained by reflective learning, dialogue, and vibrant networks. This is the Institute's work.
