Screen Shot 2015-06-30 at 13.26.32

  • oikos LEAP is designed to inspire young leaders to become more responsible in their decision making and equip them with insights, knowledge and tools to do so.

    oikos LEAP challenges participants to reflect on themselves and their values. Whilst adopting and sharing the lessons learnt in their chapters, participants practice sustainable leadership. The result is strengthened chapter performance and greater impact in line with the oikos mission. These basics will, moreover, accompany participants throughout their lives and result in change towards sustainability.

    To summarize this purpose, we chose to name this program LEAP, in order to collectively and eagerly leap forward to a world of more sustainable leadership.

    oikos LEAP operates three tracks: Advanced, President and Basic. All tracks are intended to inspire participants to take increasingly responsible actions. The utilised methods aim to embed principles of reflective action and learn-by-practising. In all tracks, the learnt knowledge, competencies and tools are expected to be implemented in oikos-related work and participants’ personal lives.

    The Advanced Track is a voluntary commitment to go through a joint development process. The Advanced Track includes a series of online and offline modules that are based on the principles of experiential learning supplemented by three guiding methodological concepts: exploring, sharing-practicing and reflecting. This track is open to any active oikos members. Participants that complete the process will be assigned a personalised certificate. Go to the LEAP Advanced Track.

    All chapter presidents are encouraged to part take in the President Track. This includes LEAP Meetings (former Presidents’ Meeting) occurring before oikos FutureLabs and Spring Meetings, and three online webinars.

    The Basic Track is open to all interested oikos members. This track consists of three online webinars.

    This year’s oikos LEAP Meetings are partially made possible by:

  • A collection of learning material (books, articles, videos, etc.) will be at the disposal of the participants. It is up to each participant to take advantage of the material and deepen one’s understanding. The creation of the Toolbox is a common effort of the participants and the organising team, taking place via their intranet on Podio, which participants also use to communicate on everyday problems they incur.

    The Webinars address topics that give participants a taste of the importance of responsible leadership. By listening to some of the best experts in the field, you will truly enrich your understanding in the addressed topics.

    Building the Bridge As You Walk On It: A Guide for Leading Change by Robert E. Quinn

    “Building the Bridge As You Walk On It” tells the personal stories of people who have embraced deep change and inspired author Robert Quinn to take his concept one step further and develop a new model of leadership “the fundamental state of leadership”. The exploration of this transformative state is at the very heart of the book. Quinn shows how anyone can enter the fundamental state of leadership by engaging in the eight practices that center on the theme of ever-increasing integrity – reflective action, authentic engagement, appreciative inquiry, grounded vision, adaptive confidence, detached interdependence, responsible freedom, and tough love. After each chapter, Quinn challenges you to assess yourself with respect to each practice and to formulate a strategy for personal growth. More info here.

    Tribes We Need You to Lead Us by Seith Godin

    A tribe is any group of people, large or small, who are connected to one another, a leader, and an idea. For millions of years, humans have joined tribes, be they religious, ethnic, political, or even musical (think of the Deadheads). It’s our nature. Now the Internet has eliminated the barriers of geography, cost, and time. All those blogs and social networking sites are helping existing tribes get bigger and enabling new tribes to be born―groups of ten or ten million who care about a political campaign, or a new way to fight global warming.

    Who is going to lead all these tribes? The Web can do amazing things, but it can’t provide leadership. That still has to come from individuals―people just like you who have passion about something. Anyone who wants to make a difference now has the tools at their fingertips.

    If you think leadership is for other people, think again―leaders come in surprising packages. Ignore an opportunity to lead and you risk turning into a “sheepwalker”―someone who fights to protect the status quo at all costs, never asking if obedience is doing you (or your organization) any good. Sheepwalkers don’t do very well these days.

    Tribes will make you think (really think) about the opportunities for leading your fellow employees, customers, investors, believers, hobbyists, readers…. It’s not easy, but it’s easier than you probably imagine. More info here.
