Are your teams future-ready?

We are a global cooperative of experts, educators and practitioners helping organisations achieve sustainable impact.

Our mission

The mission of the Responsible Leadership Academy is to help organizations and structures achieve sustainable impact. 

We create conditions in which people are committed to and proud of their organization’s purpose. 

We help organizations to be responsive to the needs of their stakeholders, and able to go beyond their objectives to make a real difference in their environment.

We enable organizational realities where all people are valued for their contributions and have equal opportunities to participate. In those conditions, people can develop and use their full potential at work. They are driven to create quality ideas and outcomes together, and share responsibility for seeing them through.

Our expertise

We are a global cooperative of experts, educators and practitioners committed to building responsible leadership within teams, organizations and institutions.

Our experts have worked around the world and bring experience from diplomacy, international organizations and NGOs, think tanks and academic institutions, media, businesses and startups, consulting and international trade.

Our diverse experiences have led us to the same conclusion:

The leadership models of the past are not fit to meet today’s challenges. Something needs to change.

With modern global research and decades of cumulative leadership experience in our team, we have developed a framework of seven responsible leadership outcomes:

1. Ethics

Integrity, shared responsibility and positive accountability across teams will boost your organization’s reputation and enhance stakeholder confidence in your work.

2. Engagement

Actively engaging your employees in formulating strategies, plans and tasks will build a sense of belonging and ownership of your organization’s success.

3. Empowerment

By recruiting people who share your values, supporting their self-development and empowering them to fully apply their competencies at work, you will increase staff retention and organizational effectiveness.

4. Inclusiveness

Flexible, diverse and inclusive teams that work together with trust and mutual respect will increase your organization’s adaptability and its potential for sustainable impact at scale.

5. Communication

Two-way, open and transparent communication within your teams and with stakeholders will bring clarity to your work, stimulate positive effort and enhance performance.

6. Innovation

If given the time and space to think creatively and try new things in a safe and supportive environment, your employees will develop and implement cutting-edge solutions that advance your goals.

7. Purpose

By committing seriously to social and environmental goals, you will not only safeguard your organization’s future, but also help bring about a more sustainable world.
