Collaborative leadership is key to a sustainable future.
My name is Laura Calandrella. For the last two decades, I’ve been on a mission to help conservation leaders come together to solve complex environmental issues facing our world. I help individuals, teams, and organizations build their leadership capacity and apply it in mission-critical ways.
I trained as a biologist, first applying my skill set in international development and then later in US federal land management. I never set out to be a professional consultant. But after spending years in the field, every project and experience I had continually returned me to one vital understanding: whenever we’re talking about the future of conservation, leadership matters.
And I’ve learned firsthand that effective leadership in the world of sustainability is never just about the responsibility of one. With the stakes as high as they are in the current landscape, it is the leadership of many that we need to cultivate.
