LEADERSHIP DEVELOPMENT TO REALISE THE SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT GOALS (SDGs)
We are witnessing increasing demand for public sector leadership capable of driving sustainable development. “Leadership [is] becoming more collective, less individual. Many thinkers today (Clay Shirkey, Andrew
Hargadon, Josh Bernoff, Charlene Li) suggest that innovation, change, new directions, and strategies emerge not from individuals, but from the social network” (The Forum Corporation, 2013), stressing the need for collective and distributed leadership to meet the challenges of social and economic development.
In addition, 2 critical dimensions must be seriously taken into account when formulating and planning development policies: (a) “the SDGs recognize the vital role that women play in social and economic development and reform and the need for their full and equal participation and leadership in all areas
of sustainable development” (The World Health Organization, 2015); (b) Based on the outcome of the COP21 conference, climate change and ecology are to be reflected in every aspect of social and economic development.
