Leadership Development

About This Collection

This special collection focuses on those voices of sustainability addressing the attributes of leaders and the processes for developing them.  A failure of leadership has been cited by academics such as Bill George of Harvard University as putting our country at risk and a factor in the 2008 economic collapse. There is Doug Cohen addressing natural leadership, calling out what is Job One of a leader.  His view might surprise you.

Since out site, EarthSayers.tv, focuses on sustainability leaders we thought it useful to call out the voices that are emphasizing leadership development and talking about the qualiites of a leader since the category has a history of stereotyping that pretty much has excluded half of the population based on gender, another large percentage based on color or ethnic origin, and our young citizens. The face as well as the voice of a leader is changing and we want to call out those among us addressing this change.

The five qualities of leadership we have seen as we have grown the EarthSayers collection are: (1) Givers not takers; (2) Motivators; (3) Different and humble; (4) Multi-cultured; and (5) Visible.  We think you'll hear these qualities from leadership experts in this special collection and see them in the leaders here on EarthSayers.tv.

Introduction to Tees At Risk

Our company, Tees at Risk, is one of the first apparel companies in the US to be certified as a B Corporation. Our t-shirts are designed by at-risk youth, and each design benefits a different youth-focused nonprofit. Each design also has an embedded QR code which when scanned with a smartphone displays the youthful artists’ “story behind the shirt.” More on the company on their Website.   We are always looking for: (1) more designs, (2) more organizations to work with, and (3) custom design projects. We’d love to hear from you!
