Great leaders change the world. But it isn’t always easy: leadership demands hard work, dedication, and creativity. I was recently reminded of the transformative power (and huge challenges) of great leadership at an event for Real Leaders™ in New York this October.
Real Leaders™ –- the world’s first sustainable business and leadership magazine, which aims to inspire better leaders for a better world –- hosted a panel of impact leaders at the event. This panel was held in conjunction with UNGA to discuss how both established and emerging citizens are taking innovative actions to achieve the UN’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals.
Panelists included Jay Shetty, an award-winning online host and filmmaker, Jess Jacobs, an actress and co-founder of Invisible Pictures, and Marci Zaroff, Founder of MetaWear Organic and BeyondBrands.
Here are some of the ways they along with today's other most prominent visionaries redefine what it means to lead. It’s through their examples that we can all be inspired and learn to lead in more profound ways.
