What drives you

We believe that the critical challenges society faces, including climate change, global migration, and access to education, require bold leaders from all sectors to come together, take initiative, and create lasting solutions. The LEAD Summer School brings such leaders together and equips them with cutting edge skills in applied leadership.

During this experience, participants will become agents of change in their organization as well as learn to empower and inspire others. They become part of a network of international leaders allowing for cross-fertilization, co-learning, and peer-coaching beyond the duration of the LEAD Summer School.

Who you are

The LEAD Summer School is an ideal fit if you:

  • are in a leadership position in a business, educational, governmental or civil society organization,
  • have a minimum of 2 years professional experience,
  • have the passion to drive change, inspire and empower others, and have impact beyond your own organization.

What the program looks like

The LEAD Summer School consists of networking and intensive workshop training covering the four tracks LEAD has identified as being crucial for successful leadership in the digital age:   

Communication & Advocacy Skills

How do I communicate in the best way and how do I inspire others?

Reflective Skills

What is my inner source and what are my intentions?

Strategy Skills

Where do I and my organization operate?

Multi-Stakeholder Skills

How do I interact with others in order to find common solutions?
