The Oxford Character Project and the Human Flourishing Program at Harvard University's Institute for Quantitative Social Sciences have come together to create two communities of practice: 'Leadership for Flourishing' and 'Educational Leadership for Flourishing’.
These groups, chaired by Oxford Character Project Associate Fellows Katy Granville Chapman and Emmie Bidston, draw together practitioners from around the world, meeting monthly as part of our mission to reimagine leadership as empowering human flourishing for individuals, organisations and societies.
Our work builds upon and seeks to advance academic research regarding the power of leadership to positively impact individuals, organizations and societies. In recent years, scientific work on the nature and drivers of human flourishing has advanced considerably and we have a better understanding than ever about what makes for a flourishing life. However, the focused application of these insights to leadership that enables flourishing trails behind. While further “discovery” work is important, there is also a real need for coordinated action to take leadership that empowers flourishing to scale at the individual, organizational and societal levels globally.
