We are living through a period of seismic societal, racial, and economic change. This is precisely the time when leaders go to work. As a leader, your ability to respond to pressing social issues and changing stakeholder expectations will determine your organization’s survival and fuel its growth. But how can you simultaneously maximize inclusivity, agility, and productivity with limited resources? And how should your organization make your value proposition clear to employees, customers, and suppliers, alike? Taught from the conjoined perspectives of an award-winning impact investor/CEO and an information technologist turned not-for-profit leader, this timely course provides a framework for driving financial and societal impact through the systematic operationalization of purpose.

Issues relating to social impact are now among the most important concerns for leaders and companies globally. As business leaders redefine the purpose of a corporation to promote an economy that serves all, they are challenged to maximize inclusivity, social impact, and corporate sustainability while satisfying the demands of balance sheets and stakeholders. 

The winning formula will require incredible agility of mind, spirit, and brand, made manifest through quantitative rigor and technological innovation but also through acute emotional intelligence.
Led by practitioners, James Rhee, Impact Investor and Former Chairman & CEO, Ashley Stewart, and Bridget Akinc, CEO of Building Impact and Former Tech Executive, this innovative new course provides a framework for achieving multi-dimensional transformation. Impactful Leadership will help leaders of future-looking and impact-oriented organizations:

  • Operationalize normative goals through a re-examination of financial measurements
  • Deconstruct conventional accounting metrics and rebuild them with purpose and enhanced profitability
  • Reconcile individual, organizational and societal goals
  • Create a culture and mindset of agility, broadly defined
  • Find the most efficient and profitable way to communicate purpose to oftentimes conflicting stakeholders
  • Build systems in finance, marketing, technology, and labor that will offer opportunities for learning and financial growth
  • Define the role of business leaders amidst a workforce grappling with issues of race, gender, and inequality in their daily lives

  • Operationalize not-for-profit purpose in a for-profit setting
  • Understand stakeholder capitalism
  • Financially engineer solutions to societal issues
  • Recognize the power of diverse ecosystems 
  • Affirm the business case for diversity
  • Break down mental models and think big

The faculty of this program are committed to empowering people to fulfill their true potential by marrying capital with purpose and truth across systems. Impactful Leadership will allow for (and demand) the purposeful reflection of next generation leaders. 

Sample Schedule—Subject to Change

This program is designed for general managers, aspiring leaders, consultants, entrepreneurial thinkers and others who are interested in gaining a multi-dimensional understanding of the inextricable link between quantitative and qualitative drivers of individual and organizational performance. It will be of interest for those responsible for creating value through human capital both external and internal to the organization, and for those interested in redefining their leadership strategy against the backdrop of a rapidly shifting landscape.

Although the course will address financial concepts, it does not presuppose any level of financial sophistication. The ideal class will include participants from a wide range of disciplines and functional roles, with diverse backgrounds and experiences, who are interested in developing a sense of purpose. Women and those from other groups typically underrepresented in leadership roles are encouraged to enroll.
