The importance of Leadership & Personal development with Topic Leader: Astrid Elburg

Posted on 10 april 2018

What inspires you to contribute to a sustainable world?

I believe that a sustainable world starts with developing the right attitude towards life in general. Since I’m working in the field of human design, I think that our knowledge of Science and technology has increased revolutionary, but our human behaviour is not sufficiently evolved

What is the most urgent action businesses today should take to address employee leadership & personal development?

In my work, I see that our education systems do not pay attention to human development, so employees are not adequately equipped to take responsibility for their own resilience in our exponential changing times.

In your experience, which organisations are utilising this responsibility?

I experience that it depends on specific individuals in organisations, in general, it is not a usual policy.

How can young professionals utilise leadership & personal development to contribute to creating sustainable solutions?

Young professionals should know that they might be at mental risk if they do not pay attention to develop personal life strategies. They should understand that investing in personal development will give them strength and direction so they will be more flexible and agile in the world of today and tomorrow.
