Creating social change is tough work. What does it take to be an effective leader and to sustain yourself over the long-term?
Together with the American Express Leadership Academy, we designed this +Acumen short course around a one hour webinar featuring a conversation between Nancy Lublin, CEO of DoSomething.org, and Ami Dar, Founder of Idealist.org, at the American Express Leadership Academy Inaugural Alumni Summit in March 2015.
At Acumen, we believe that effective leadership is illustrated by an individual’s ambition to learn at the edge, wisdom to admit failure and courage to start again. Leaders who are effective at creating social change do what’s right, not what’s easy. They embody the essence of moral imagination – the humility to see the world as it is and the audacity to imagine the world as it could be. This conversation between Nancy and Ami is a great opportunity to reflect on what this means for each of us.
Learn from Nancy and Ami’s stories, but do not stop there. Use the course discussion guide and exercises to help you further your journey as a social purpose leader.
The world needs you to lead. This is your invitation.
