Our Moonshot: one million LEx Leaders in positions of influence, power and impact by 2029: from classrooms to boardrooms to legislatures.
Together we will build a community that will transform the world.
Who Are We?
A non-profit enterprise connecting accomplished people of all ages and backgrounds, from business, government, science, the arts and academe, who share a passion for leadership responsibility and global change.
The world has never been so connected – nor fractured. The world has never been so wealthy – nor inequitable. The world has never been so hungry for inspired and inspiring leadership.
As individuals we have demonstrated accomplishment. Collectively we will inspire the world by example and change global leadership cultures to achieve a sustainable and just world.
Members of our diverse community will engage with and mobilize local and global circles, mentoring programs, and marketplace and career exchanges to build a supportive, results-oriented community committed to driving transformative, positive change in leadership – personally, in our communities and globally.
We envision leadership cultures in which personal fulfillment, enterprise success, environmental sustainability and social justice are together guarantors of prosperity for all in a world of abundance.
To catalyze a community of accomplished leader creators who share a sense of destiny and are uniquely positioned to transform leadership cultures everywhere. A group committed to systemic global change by the elevation of our members to positions of influence and power—be it classroom, boardroom or legislature.
Our support of each other is the foundation of the transformation we will effect
We honour diversity
We focus on common impact not ideology
We believe open societies are better than closed
We commit to practice personal mastery with self-awareness, open mindedness and generosity
We are tenacious and will persevere—ours is a long road
We have the courage to inspire and the humility to lead by example
We are collaborators—respectful, accepting, challenging
We live in an age of abundance in which self-interest and societal interest need no longer be in conflict. While enlightened self-interest lies at the heart of discovery, innovation and creation, its application is best nurtured and shared within an equitable, healthy, vibrant and prosperous society
We are leader creators – recognized by our peers for having created and/or run for-profit, public or not-for-profit enterprises, or being accomplished contributors to academia, the arts, sciences, humanities, social discourse or community activism. We are people of all races and cultures, all ages and genders, bound not by ideology, but by a shared passion for common impact
We commit to help each other to achieve personal and professional success within our domains – to be makers and enablers of exceptional enterprises/communities/societies through peer support and purposeful collaboration
We commit to lead by example – connecting, empowering and mobilizing members who understand the transformative power of collective strength and action
We do not pretend to have all the answers. Rather, we are committed to building the vibrant global community from which new and enduring leadership cultures will be defined, nurtured, shared and adopted
We are a self-sustaining movement – an evolving, self-organizing diverse global community that will define our objectives and determine our outcomes from the bottom-up, not the top-down. Our strength is in the constant pursuit of the promise and potential of the Vision, Mission, Core Values and First Principles of the community we build and mobilize
