Subtle skills for bold leaders

More than 500 delegates attend the GBCSA’s annual Green Building Conventions.  Drawing on pre-industrial cultures, Nicola’s keynote talk at the 2016 Convention shared leadership skills of particular value in complex times. Leaders that demonstrate use of these subtle skills include Elon Musk, Archbishop Desmond Tutu, Nelson Mandela and 26-year-old Asmaa Mahfouz, who helped inspire the 2011 uprising in Egypt’s Tahrir Square. At the 2015 Convention, Jonathon gave an opening address and participated on an expert panel with former Puma CEO Jochen Zeitz, critically assessing the corporate response to societal challenges.
