What are the challenges for leaders in the face of economic, social, cultural, and environmental change? How are issues of sustainability showing up in the organizations we serve? Are there new capabilities that must be developed, and if so, how? How do we prepare value-driven, idealistic, and realistic leaders for a sustainable future?

Five years into these questions as Core Faculty at Presidio Graduate School in San Francisco, Dr. Cynthia Scott shares her “work in progress” in designing programs to develop over 400 Sustainability Leaders in the MBA, MPA, and Executive Certificate Programs.
