When you’re lost for words

Lisa van der Heijden: Before I started my journey of One Young World it did not happen a lot: me losing words for expressing myself. But since One Young World it happens on a regular basis. It is something I am not used to, because I always had a reaction or an argument. But seeing so many problems around me makes me feel privileged and speechless. What do I mean? Because of One Young World I go to more events, I speak to more people and I am learning more about people who have a different position or background than me.

Ben's blog about small leaders with a big P; why leadership is public

February 18, 2018

Moving from “big leaders with a small P”, to “small leaders with a big P”. Rather than focusing on what “big leaders” do, we should be much more interested in what we (and others around us) are doing ourselves. Leadership is about the big P – for Purpose. And therefore, leadership is public. It concerns all of us and can be found all around us. So let’s not wait for the leaders and start making a difference.
