Abstract

This paper highlights key findings from research carried out with 106 delegates of the 13th International Leadership Association Conference around the theme of ‘One Planet Many Worlds: Remapping the purpose of leadership’. A number of important issues were brought to the forefront: the importance of the younger generation, the role of education, notions of ethics and responsibility, a bottom-up leadership perspective and calls to action of both ourselves and those we consider to be leaders. Based on interviews conducted through crowd sourcing we investigate whether dealing with the complex challenges that our society is facing such as sustainability is a simple matter of education.
