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.

Sports and Consciousness by Pete Carroll

One of only three coaches to win a Super Bowl and college football national championship, Pete Carroll is in his seventh year as head coach and executive vice president of the NFL’s Seattle Seahawks following one of the most successful runs in the college football history while at USC. With his unique “Always Compete” philosophy and approach, Carroll has a combined 42 years of highly decorated NFL and collegiate coaching experience.

Pete was interviewed by transformational leadership consultant Joyce Anastasia.  

Subjects discussed include: Ability to communicate is an ongoing process of discovery to find the very best as a team and as individuals.  Relationship based approach to success, still challenging, many variables. Common language, commitment to the process. It is hard to do well all the time. All comes from discipline, but you don't have to approach leadership the same way we came to understand authoritarian way of leadership which is not the only way nor the most effective way for him.
