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.
Winners will be announced in October.
The Tällberg Foundation hosted a conversation about the conflict in Ukraine and its implications on Friday, March 4. You can watch the recording of the webinar here.
We believe innovative, risk-taking, ethical leaders exist and we established the leadership prizes to help us find out how they are making changes that will shift the current paradigms.
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 & Webinars
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.
