Executive Leadership Academy

The ANIMA Executive Leadership Academy

The College of Mount Saint Vincent has partnered with ONE HUNDRED and Soulful Impact to host three Executive Leadership Academies. The focus of the academies has included social entrepreneurship, global health care, next generation philanthropy, the SDGs, and corporate leadership for the common good. The most recent academy was held in April 2018.

The ANIMA Model
The ANIMA model of leadership symbolizes a truly soulful approach to the enormous privileges and responsibilities embedded in leadership. In a global, increasingly interconnected society, the leaders who create the greatest impact will be those who serve, mentor, and inspire others.

A soulful leader seeks to provide more benefits than simply profit to his or her stakeholders. A premium is placed on treating employees as co-entrepreneurs; on conservancy of the environment; on local, as well as global outreach; and on an intentional strategy for operation that serves the common good. If the leadership of an organization conducts every transaction according to the Golden Rule: treating everyone as they, themselves wish to be treated; they will achieve the fullest potential of their vocation.
