Evolving Leadership for Collective Wellbeing: Lessons for Implementing the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals 

Edited By: Seana Lowe Steffen and Jamie RezmovitS with Shanah Trevenna and Shana Rappaport

History was made when the United Nations published Transforming Our World: The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and world leaders stepped up to pledge unifying commitments to secure a sustainable future "where all life can thrive." Now, we the people—the world's individuals, organizations, and communities that have been championing the shared vision of a sustainable future—need access to the best leadership guidance available to build on the successes of past efforts and advance breakthrough progress.  

Evolving Leadership for Collective Wellbeing: Lessons for Implementing the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals provides that guidance. This collection is a go-to resource for individuals wishing to heighten leadership effectiveness through access to vanguard theory and practice. It highlights stories and insights from leadership practitioners and scholars around the world, in the process offering invaluable insights into diverse lessons, models, and practices, and it offers case and place-based chapters that bridge theory and practice to empower diverse actors around the world. 

We support purpose-driven organizations and planet-minded leadership with envisioning and implementing extraordinary possibilities
