This special collection focuses on those voices of sustainability addressing the attributes of leaders and the processes for developing them. A failure of leadership has been cited by academics such as Bill George of Harvard University as putting our country at risk and a factor in the 2008 economic collapse. There is Doug Cohen addressing natural leadership, calling out what is Job One of a leader. His view might surprise you.
Since out site, EarthSayers.tv, focuses on sustainability leaders we thought it useful to call out the voices that are emphasizing leadership development and talking about the qualiites of a leader since the category has a history of stereotyping that pretty much has excluded half of the population based on gender, another large percentage based on color or ethnic origin, and our young citizens. The face as well as the voice of a leader is changing and we want to call out those among us addressing this change.
The five qualities of leadership we have seen as we have grown the EarthSayers collection are: (1) Givers not takers; (2) Motivators; (3) Different and humble; (4) Multi-cultured; and (5) Visible. We think you'll hear these qualities from leadership experts in this special collection and see them in the leaders here on EarthSayers.tv.

Van Jones on Leadership
Green Economy pioneer Van Jones addresses the 2009 Bentley University/TIME magazine Leadership Forum. Jones, founder of Green For All and served as President Obama's Special Advisor for Green Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation at the White House Council on Environmental Quality. This is Part 1 of a 27-minute address where he addresses the three fallacies that tore the floor out from under the American people: rely on consumtion, rather than production; credit rather than smart savings and thrift; and ecological destruction rather than restoration.
Since resigning from his White House post, Mr. Jones has been vilified in the press as a communist, fascist and racist. We recommend listening to what he talks about, rather than the talk about him.
