About the course


Disruptions and existential threats have been relentlessly challenging our world since the dawn of the 21st century. The dotcom bust in 2001, 9/11 attacks, the great recession of 2008, digital disruption, geo-political tensions, ideological polarisation, environmental degradation, COVID-19 pandemic, declining global happiness, increasing rates of depression — the list goes on. Given that much of this grim scenario is man-made, will our traditional models of leadership, management, governance, and investment be adequate to improve it? Will the currently widespread zero-sum approach and mindset work to address the enormity of today’s challenges?

We need a whole new model. One that embraces stewardship.

Stewardship is leading, managing, governing, and investing with the purpose of sustaining long-term value creation by balancing the needs of all stakeholders, society, future generations, and the environment.

Based on this integrative and collaborative approach, steward leadership enables more sustainable and inclusive growth. In the 21st century, pursuing such holistic growth might be the only way to safeguard our own personal happiness and success, as well as that of our stakeholders and future generations.
