Foundation for Natural Leadership
Nature as portal to leadership
At the Foundation for Natural Leadership, they believe that the 21st century needs a new form of leadership. The way in which our society and private sector use the Earth’s limited resources has proved unsustainable. Under pressure from countless new developments in society and technology, as individuals and employees we have drifted further and further from the key to our existence: living together with each other and with nature. Furthermore, most of the potential we possess as human beings remains untapped. This creates incredible opportunities.
The Foundation’s roots lie in the 2002 International Dialogue Conference of the Encounter of Worldviews Foundation. This conference brought together people from a range of disciplines and with backgrounds in business, politics and non-governmental organisations, from different religious backgrounds and from the various continents of the world. There was a strong recognition that as a species, we can learn a great deal from Nature and that we have a clear responsibility to work with Nature in a sustainable way. Based on this understanding, the next step was to create a programme in which Nature could serve as a portal for leadership transformation. And thus, the foundation was born.
