INNOVATION & LEADERSHIP

COMMUNITY

WHAT IS IT

YBP Innovation & leadership Community is a group of top managers and entrepreneurs from different Industries, Countries and Cultures.

We meet every month to work together on an innovative project to create value for ourselves, our companies, our people and our society.

YBP created 7 years ago the INNOVATION and LEADERSHIP COMMUNITY, where senior leaders can personally experience in a free and safe space a new leadership style based on empathy, able to manage high complexity and to bring high results.

 

YBP Innovation & leadership Community is a space where top managers can be directly in front of reality, where they can experience with other senior leaders the positive impact of learning from others, of asking questions, of observing the world around us, of taking the risk of sharing doubts; where they can say: “I don't understand…"

Where they can see that power is not the only way to lead. 

 

YBP created this space because we believe that all of this is the novelty of true collaboration.

 

We believe that this will create an impactful project together.

 

We believe that this Community of people is the real prototype of new Leaders at the TOP.

On October 29, our Innovation & Leadership Community will be honored to work with RUNA KHAN, a leader who is changing Bangladesh, her own Country.

 

Runa Khan is an advocate for human rights, women's empowerment, leadership, and the importance of cultivating human values. She is the founder and co-chair of Friendship, an International Social Purpose Organization established in 2002, that helps transform lives by working together with vulnerable people in the remotest communities. 

 

Friendship's strategy focuses on 4 vital challenges: Saving Lives, Poverty Alleviation, Climate Adaptation and Empowerment. Over the years, Friendship has provided medical care in areas where people have almost no access to vital health services and where exposure to natural disasters is a daily reality.

 

Runa Khan's work is based on empathy, respect, a deep sense of justice and replicable innovation.

 

She received numerous awards among which: Green Award by Positive Planet Foundation (2016), Social Innovation Leadership Award by the World CSR Congress (2014), Social Entrepreneur Award, IDB for contribution toward Women in development (2008), Rolex Awards for Entrepreneurship (2006), an Ashoka fellow and a Schwab Foundation Social Entrepreneur.

We define the Innovation & leadership Community as "The Garden of Empathy", due to the fact that it is a privileged space in which to experience empathy.

This is the image we painted to represent "The Garden of Empathy", a vibrant, beautiful and true space where everyone can grow and express themselves.

The Innovation & Leadership Community is a unique experience in which international top managers from different Countries and Industries meet to build common projects and to confront and grow as leaders.

After a year of in-depth work on empathy, based on both scientific research and our co-creation, the step YBP’s Innovation & Leadership Community wants to take in 2021 is to bring everything we have discovered - to put ourselves in the shoes of others using the “Empathy Lexicon” and the “Empathy Model Canvas” - to a higher level: FROM THE LEADER to the ECOSYSTEM.

Take a look at

“Innovation & Leadership Community manifesto”

EMPATHY LEXICON
Recent studies on leadership and innovation,
conducted by some of the most important business schools and consultancy companies worldwide, show that the key to be successful in such a rapidly evolving business environment is empathy: the capacity to put yourself in the shoes of another person.


“The empathetic leader can foster an engaged and empowered workforce that, in a rapidly changing world, is the key to unlocking a company’s potential”, writes Egon Zehnder consultant Andrew Roscoe in the Financial Times. Moreover, empathy is essential when managing millennials who perform best for leaders who understand them as individuals.


For this reason, a scientific work on Empathy as the new way to be a Leader, is the core of I&LC 2020.

Kant, Wittgenstein 

and the blue sofa

It’s an e-book about the path on Integrity and Business we travelled along together with the 1st Innovation & Leadership Community. We understood that integrity is the key point of leadership today. 

Integrity of the person, in her/his own role, in her/his own company, in the global environment.

Innovation & Leadership Community 
Dialogue with Gianrico Carofiglio

“Each of us should pay careful attention to words. Not only in our active use of the language, when we talk, when we write, but even more in our apparently passive use of it, when we listen, when we read. Because only words that pay respect to concepts, things and facts can pay respect to the truth”.

Dialogue with Michelangelo Pistoletto​​

“The first thing that you can do in order to recognize the image of yourself is to take a mirror and make a self portrait! 

But at the same time you recognize everybody else that is in the mirror with you, and you start to recognize society; you transform art into the experience of life ”.
