We are excited to share the inspiring story of Jan Artem Henriksson, Executive Director of the Inner Development Goals. He talks about his Ukrainian roots, the role of inner development in his life and the immense resonance of the Inner Development Goals.
Jan is a man who wears many different hats. Besides co-founding two companies, he is a Stockholm School of Economics Executive Education faculty member and a Senior Fellow with the Flourishing Network, part of Harvard University's Human Flourishing Program.
These days he is perhaps best known as the Executive Director of the Inner Development Goals (IDGs) Initiative. Launched in 2020, the IDGs provide organisations and even countries with an open source inner development framework to support collective efforts to reach the UN's sustainable development goals, the SDGs.
In this episode of the podcast, our new host Tamsin Walker spoke to Jan about the path to his current role, what defines personal inner development and how that can make a difference to and in the world around us.
About the Inner Development Goals
The Inner Development Goals (IDGs) is a non-profit and open-source initiative to promote inner development to accelerate the SDGs. At the core of its work lies a simple communication tool summarising 23 important inner skills and qualities, which was derived through consultation with over 4000 scientists, practitioners and other experts. The IDGs organisation has a strong following, with over 300 hubs around the world and many partners. This includes sustainability professionals, large systemic organisations (e.g. UNDP), and even countries (e.g. Costa Rica). At the Inner Green Deal we collaborate closely and together we developed and delivered the first Global Leadership for Sustainable Development programme based on the IDG framework. More information about the Inner Development Goals can be found here: https://www.innerdevelopmentgoals.org/.
