What does it take to be a leader today?
The Tällberg Foundation explores the issues that are challenging and changing our societies with the goal of stimulating new thinking for a new world.
We also believe that a new kind of leadership is badly needed for our societies to prosper: leadership that is innovative, courageous, dynamic, rooted in universal values and global in implication. In that spirit we have established the Tällberg-SNF-Eliasson Global Leadership Prize
This year we award two Prizes to established leaders and two to emerging leaders. Watch the 2021 Tällberg-SNF-Eliasson Global Leadership Prize Winners Celebration here.
“Tällberg’s Jazz for the Planet” seeks to encourage people – and their leaders – to act with the urgency and the focus that our global predicament demands.
Watch the webinar “Save the Seas” recorded on November 16 with oceanographers Sylvia Earle from the United States and Asha de Vos from Sri Lanka.
Watch the celebration of the 2021 Prize winners! A program that includes interviews with the winners, roundtable conversations about leadership, and COP26.
Working Across Borders
and Across Disciplines
If we are imaginative enough to make new connections, to see new pathways, or to look at the familiar from different perspectives, then the Tällberg Foundation conversations will have lasting value. And even better if they inspire new action.
We aim to contribute to the new thinking —and new acting— required by this moment in history.
Tällberg’s work program focuses on understanding how to re-inject ethics into leadership; re-establish the legitimacy of governance; and manage, instead of being managed by, disruptive technologies, climate change, mass migration and other phenomena. We seek new thinking for a new world.
Tällberg Workshops & Conversations
Tällberg conversations aim to provoke “New Thinking” in part by convening people who are deeply knowledgeable as well as people who are deeply curious, all of whom are more concerned with finding new insights than with reinforcing conventional wisdom.
