Nina Simons, president and co-founder of Bioneers a non-profit that promotes practical environmental solutions and innovative social strategies for restoring Earth’s imperiled ecosystems and healing our human communities. Nina’s life and work are informed by her passion for the natural world, women’s leadership, systems thinking, and the arts’ capacity to shape culture and consciousness. Previous leadership roles Nina has held include president of Seeds of Change and director of strategic marketing for Odwalla. What can we learn from nature about leadership? Nina says it is time to redefine leadership, to blend the “feminine” – innovation and relational qualities- with the “masculine” – analysis and procedural qualities; to create models that support the whole. Are women the key to this evolution in leadership? Listen to this episode of Leading Conversations with Cheryl Esposito as we explore this shift in consciousness!
