Leading to Solve “Wicked” Problems
People dedicated to environmental, humanitarian, social justice, and other seemingly intractable challenges often find themselves called to lead, yet without the solid skills to do so. Tackling these complex challenges require what Eric calls ‘Big C’ change and ‘lower-case l’ leading—people at all levels, leading from where they are and making an impact locally and globally. This talk is ideal for audiences of scientists, humanitarians, physicians, policy makers, and activists who want to amplify their impact and effectiveness in addressing system-scale issues.
Passionate and insightful about the devastating domino effects of climate change, urbanization, biodiversity loss and other system-scale shifts, Eric leans into the thinking and practices that turn “accidental” leaders into purposeful, effective intentional leaders ready to use their talents and skills to create a more just and thriving world.
