Making an Impact One Grand Challenge at a Time

What is a Grand Challenge?

Grand Challenges are bold, audacious initiatives that take on socially intractable issues by uniting organizations and activists under their common agenda to work together, measure their results, communicate well, and raise the resources needed to overcome the issue once and for all.

Grand Challenges are too big for any one mind to wrap itself around, let alone devise solutions for. They are multi-dimensional with systemic roots that manifest in social behavior and thoughts that constrain and limit our ability to address them.

Grand Challenges require social movements to be overcome. They need people and institutions working together, coordinating their actions for maximum impact to address root causes and turn around the system that perpetuates them.

Grand Challenges are overwhelming. That’s why they need us working together, adapting in real time to their continued evolution, and systematically, continuously applying pressure for as long as it takes to get the results we are after.

What is Visionary Leadership?

Visionary leadership is transformative. Once inspired, it penetrates the ordinary; it reaches through time into the future to bring out the very best the world has to offer. A visionary leader not only anticipates events, but actively influences the future. Visionary capacities are infectious; nurturing your own enables others to flourish.

Visionary leadership identifies challenges and growth opportunities before they happen, while positioning to produce extraordinary results that make a genuine contribution to the world.

Visionary Leaders are masters at analyzing the environment, scanning for untapped capabilities, examining unmet needs, mining core expertise, and sensing future potentialities. They’re adept at detecting larger patterns and predicting possibilities for collective impact. They spot new VIPs from whom to learn, as well as key partners with whom to engage—in substantive visioning; bringing together emerging trends and insights; and giving shape to what is possible in the near-term. Visionary leaders are good at leaning in and listening. They’re Jedis at facilitating leadership in others; true craftspeople at capturing chance, change, and opportunity; and the first in line to seize the right innovative strategy.

Visionary leaders are midwives of the future.
