UManresa (Fundació Universitària del Bages) has promoted the creation of the Values-Based Leadership University Chair of the University of Vic – Central University of Catalonia with the aim of setting the ideal conditions for people, teams and organizations to promote positive changes in their environament through leadership. Pep Guardiola and Manel Estiarte are the Chair Directors. A large number of leading figures in the academic, social and economic fields are also giving their support to the Chair.

The conceptual framework of the Chair is based on the professional and personal careers of its two directors. Thus, on a playing field, twelve pairs of activators (values) connect with four dimensions (person, team, organization and environment) and, together, become the pieces that give shape to a theoretical model that explains and specifies different styles of values-based leadership.

Our goal is to foster, develop and promote values-based leadership across society.
This is our dream and we want to share it.
