Leadership Skills for Human Rights Advocates

October 17, 2017
12:10 PM - 1:10 PM
Jerome Greene Hall 102B

Effective human rights advocacy requires leadership skills and insight. Successful leaders anchor themselves in their inner resources in order to inspire and work in solidarity with communities. How can our leadership align with our values, for the advancement of the rights of others? In this lunchtime talk, advocate and leadership trainer Kobi Skolnick will introduce core leadership skills for social justice advocates, including: how to ground ourselves in our values, distinguishing between fear and value base, handling multiple perspectives, and clarifying and communicating values.  
Kobi Skolnick is the founder of Lead for Impact and Leadership for New Emergence, transformational leadership programs for those who want a new paradigm of equality, sustainability and justice. He currently serves as the Special Adviser on Leadership Development for the Advanced Consortium on Cooperation, Conflict and Complexity at Columbia University, and as a consultant on Leadership Development for the United Nations.
