Leadership for a Better World
An Online Community from October 2020 until June 2021
The Covid-19 crisis is calling for leadership interventions that secure the quality and depth of personal interactions amongst individuals. Without such interventions there is a risk that over time organizations’ social capital erodes, creativity flags, hierarchies ossify and team spirit fades. More targeted, high-quality interactions are a precondition for flourishing organizations; they are also crucial for the mental and emotional well-being of employees.
ELP wants to support leaders to take a step back and make sense of the world we are living in. They are invited to engage into meaningful dialogues that go beyond the transactional exchanges of a normal day at work, especially if everybody is working from home.
Leadership For a Better World is the theme of an ELP virtual community that will meet online eight times between October 2020 and July 2021. Each session will start with a thought-provoking speaker, followed by moderated dialogues.
This virtual community will replace the physical ELP Annual Leadership Conference 2020, which would take place on 8 October in Rotterdam. The speakers of the Conference will be part of the online meetings.
- Be inspired by great speakers on leadership from a societal, an organizational and a personal perspective.
- Engage with peers and speakers to share ideas on how to create a desirable future.
- Reflect on your role as a leader in the changes you want to see in society.
- And.. use your leadership for creating a better world within your own context.
Recap ELP Annual Conference 2019: Staying human in a digital world
“In order to keep clarity of mind and to lead organizations, it’s important to continuously seek for new perspectives.
A wonderful and high quality conference, with ditto participants, that will surely trigger new and high impact ideas”
Francine van DierendonckExecutive Board Member APG
”Meeting different people, experience different ways of thinking, get inspired with novel trends, and meet people from outside your daily routine in a safe, non-judgemental environment.”
Kaz de JongManager Staff Care, Médécins sans Frontières
“I have had many engaging, creative and inspiring sessions at the ELP conference.
The breadth of topics covered is impressive; so is the depth at which the topics are interrogated.
The colleagues I have met have remained an invaluable source of professional and personal insight,
experience and support which I treasure to this day.”
Nicholas BrasseyCHRO, Ahold Delhaize Europe & Indonesia
“The annual conference offers the best of multiple worlds. It’s an inspiring event circling around trending leadership topics.
It provides a space to reflect upon your own leadership style and behavior. It offers you an opportunity to communicate
with kindred spirits who are in the same boat . And if all that is not enough, it’s rounded off with a good glass and fine food. I say: not to be missed!”
