The Leadership Manifesto : mapping We-Me-Us Journey

Submitted Jan 17, 2016

To leave each participant with reflections on where they are on their leadership journey. We will do this through a manifesto that we have created after speaking to leadership practitioners. This manifesto speaks about three journeys - ME, WE and US and we will be mapping ourselves vis-a-vis these.


We, at The Blue Ribbon Movement, initiated ‘leadership for tomorrow’ circles across India with leadership practitioners. We explored different questions such as - What will the new leadership look like?, What are the essential elements of leadership that should be preserved? What are the new perspectives, skills and approaches needed for young leaders for tomorrow?
Through these questions and outcomes of these circles, we decided to create our version of manifesto - an A3 size one page document.
I hope to hold a space with the participants on their journeys using this manifesto and exploring how each one of us can move forward.
