Creating science-based goals, strategies and implementation plans for organisations is a fundamental prerequisite to address the climate change disaster.

But in boardrooms across the globe, the leadership voice and influence of scientists is significantly under-represented.

Coaches can play a crucial role in elevating and accelerating leadership capacity within scientists so that they maximise the effectiveness of their advocacy.  But are we doing enough?

Dr Ruby Campbell, a scientist herself and leadership coach, has developed a simple and powerful approach to enable coaches to achieve this. 

At this session she will openly share this, and her learnings about how to elevate scientists and their leadership.

During the pandemic, we have come to appreciate the power of scientifically informed decision-making. And as we move to take climate action seriously in the coming decade, it has never been more crucial to the future of our planet that we focus on the effectiveness of leadership decision-making at all levels. How can we ensure that climate change – easily the most complex global challenge of our time – is collectively addressed by the right minds around the table for scientifically informed decision-making? In her book Scientists in Every Boardroom: Harnessing the Power of STEMM Leaders in an Irrational World, Dr Ruby Campbell shares research about how STEMM (science, technology, engineering, maths, and medicine) leaders can be integrated into key decision-making circles within government, and corporate boards globally.

In this workshop, Ruby will help you to:

Develop a deeper understanding of how essential leadership skills have evolved and which ones are non-negotiable for the 21stCentury (also known as the 4th Industrial Revolution).
Develop greater awareness of systemic factors preventing STEMM leaders from achieving senior leadership/executive roles and how to address them.
Develop an understanding of the 7 umbrella modules of the SCIENCE of Leadership framework and how to apply them when coaching STEMM leaders for better outcomes.
