Making progress in different fileds, from science and technology, through education to diplomacy – calls for responsible and sustainable leaders to step up and be the drivers of the change. In a complex systems of interdependant elements, these leaders present a lever to push that needs to be placed in just the right spot to put it in motion in all of it’s complexity. But in order to know when, where and how to act they need to have a deep understanding of the interdependencies within the systems and between the system and themselves, integrating reflections of ethics and values in a way that decisions of greater positive impact are made.
Our NexGenLead project, organized in partnership with swissnex Brazil in 2020 and supported by Movetia aimed to do just that by shaping future leaders, equipping them with skills and knowledge for responsible and sustainable decision-making. The project created some amazing learning materials on Responsible Leadership. Among those materials are the NexGenLead interviews with inspirational leaders which promote the exchange of ideas towards Responsible & Sustainable Leadership.
Over the summer we will be sharing a selection of interviews, featuring inspiring stories and each of them discussing a competency linked to Sustainable Leadership.
We start of with the interview of with Paulo Cruz Filho, a co-leader of B Corp in South Brazil. B Corp is a global community of leaders using their businesses to build a more inclusive, equitable and regenerative economic system for people and for the planet. In this interview, carried out by Caroline Castro, Paulo navigates through his personal journey sharing tools so that people can get closer to their “little flea”, and understand how we are “nóia”.
