This webinar celebrates the release of the US Water Alliance’s One Water Change Leadership for Utilities: Six Essential Capacities report and shares our findings of what capacities individuals at water utilities need to guide change toward One Water. The report explores questions such as: what are the capacities—the knowledge, skills, and attitudes—we need to cultivate to drive One Water change? How do utility managers successfully navigate through the cultural, political, economic, and human dimensions of One Water management, in addition to the technical components?
To answer these questions, we conducted in-depth interviews with 10 utility executives who are well-known in the water industry as transformative leaders—we call them changemakers. This webinar will highlight the six leadership capacities synthesized from these interviews and talk to two of the changemakers interviewed in the report to get their perspective on One Water change leadership for utilities. While these leadership capacities are drawn from and aimed at utilities, anybody looking to advance change in their work can learn from this!
