The Humane Leadership Conference invites leaders of all kinds to contribute to an evolving conversation about how humane leadership can improve business outcomes and team engagement and experience.

Our goal is to bring together a thriving community of diverse thinkers who are committed to more purposeful and human-serving workspaces and relationships.

Our focus

  • Business outcomes – humane leaders improve performance by reaching deeper than simply applying measures, accountability and external motivations
  • Personal engagement – humane leaders improve engagement by actively aligning peopleā€™s work with their own and the organization’s values
  • Community – creating opportunities and tools to bring people together in connective, expansive, inclusive, and constructive communication around our definitions of purpose, cooperation, success, and leadership

How we do it

  • Experimenting with our own self-leadership methods
  • Leveraging what we learn about humane leadership of ourselves into leading others more effectively
  • Sharing with others who want to transform their own leadership and the larger culture of leadership
  • DevelopingĀ online curricula, workshops and events
