Dr. Nazari joins 24 international thought leaders to develop a manual with proven methods of leadership techniques for the United Nations’ 2030 Agenda: implementing the Sustainable Development Goals to secure a future “where all life can thrive.” In November of 2018 the International Leadership Association (ILA) and the Restorative Leadership Institute (RLI) released Evolving Leadership For The Collective Wellbeing, a collection of 17 chapters to assist governments and individuals in securing a sustainable future.
Climate scientists have filed recent reports urging policy makers to “act now,” stating that we are at a pivotal junction in our global society. Dr. Nazari said of the RLI and ILA’s efforts, “In this crucial time we need to take responsibility and act immediately. It is my honor to contribute to this meaningful and much needed work.”
It takes more than a plan to work collectively; it requires purpose, compassion, leadership, and constant negotiation. Dr. Mehrad Nazari’s chapter in this book exposes the essence of Enlightened Negotiation – the connective tissue in leadership anatomy – something the RLI and ILA wholeheartedly believe can be of great value to an international audience. The Enlightened Negotiation approach can be used by individuals, organizations, and businesses alike to maximize collective gain and bridge social, economic, and cultural gaps.
