Leaders for a new beginning

A book by Justine Toms, Marina Stefanova and Jane Muita

Changes happen and they happen very fast. With wide-open hearts and dazzling minds, we look for a new fulcrum to inspire us to rethink our place and purpose. Leaders to guide us through the uncertainty of this vuca world and to follow in the new normal.

United Nations calls the next 10 years a Decade of Action and urges people to generate an unstoppable movement pushing for the required transformations, so we may be able to achieve the best we hope for – sustainable development of the people, planet and prosperity.

This book is our contribution to this journey. We gather the elements of political, economic, social and universal processes of transformation in order to put together the puzzle of a healthier, more regenerative and solidarity society. We unpack some of the most recent leadership theories and dive deep into the characteristics of these extraordinary individuals who have vision, courage and compassion to transform their organizations and communities.

About leadership

"Leadership and learning are indispensable to each other."

John F. Kennedy

"Leaders need to provide strategy and direction and to give employees the tools that enable them to gather information and insight from around the world. Leaders shouldn’t try to make every decision."

Bill Gates Founder of Microsoft
