WORKSHOP OVERVIEW:

The path to sustainability is neither straight nor well lit. To make the journey, we need to be creative with our human capital resources and work together to build new operating systems.

For many sustainability practitioners the job requires skills beyond scientific knowledge, analysis, data management and reporting.  In fact, what most practitioners face is a need to connect with people, tell a story, cast a vision and drive change within their organization. 

In this workshop we will address the following questions: What is sustainability and how do we co-create ideas and expectations, spread vision, and inspire action, effectively and exponentially to meet our sustainability goals? 

The workshop is a blend of key offerings from change management, service leadership and sparking creative solutions. These mindsets and practices will enhance your skills as a sustainability practitioner and teach you how to inspire and lead those you work with to build and expand the pathway to sustainability. 


WHO SHOULD ATTEND:
This hands-on workshop is designed for sustainability professionals who have been in their role more than one year and are eager to deepen their skill set to help further the sustainability initiatives at their company. 


WHAT ATTENDEES WILL COME AWAY WITH:
Attendees will receive dynamic instruction and education on a baseline definition of sustainability, and building up from that: how to be effective in facilitation techniques for co-creating ideas and strategy, spreading a vision and inspiring action, leading a team, and storytelling, all of which helps influence change inside your organization.
