Dalai Lama Fellows is Reimagining Leadership
Through a head, heart and hands ethical leadership approach, we cultivate and support a global movement of next generation leaders applying universal values to solve global challenges.
We all share a vision for our common humanity, but somehow we’ve overemphasized profit and growth over inner and outer peace and connection to others and the world.  
Millennials will make up 75% of the workforce by 2030, and they are asking for new ways of leading that can benefit all of us and our planet. Join us in the global movement to Reimagine Leadership.

Thupten Jinpa, Advisory Council Member and Principal Translator for the 14th Dalai Lama
How We Are Reimagining Leadership:
Leaders embody and cultivate positive values. Leadership begins with the self. Exemplary leaders like Nelson Mandela, Martin Luther King Jr., Malala and the Dalai Lama cultivate strong personal practices to maintain their connection to themselves and others. We believe a strong foundation in practices that cultivate awareness and are rooted in genuine compassion for the self and others is vital to embody one's values.
Leaders work for the benefit of our common humanity. Every person in a position of leadership must realize how their actions impact communities and societies, both directly and indirectly. Leaders must have the integrity, courage, humility, ambition and resilience to stand up to and take accountability for violence, corruption, abuse, inequity, bias and indifference. Leaders must connect across differences and come together as one human family. 

Leaders build solutions now for a better future.  Leaders can reinvent the future, heal our planet and ensure our survival. Leaders must understand the bigger picture and think long-term. Only by taking the long view will leaders be able to discern the best course of action now towards achieving that better future. The Reimagined Leader is one who leads in community, working for the benefit of generations to come. 
We are grateful for the continued support from our institutional partners and more than 250 individuals who support and join us in the global movement to reimagine leadership.
