Sustainability: Reaching ALL your targets
As Sustainablility Practitioners we are change makers, catalysts and knowledge centres with abilities to inspire transformation through coaching, co-ordinating and empowering others. Whatever your background or specialism, the joys of seeing projects grow from small ideas to delivery provides a sense of job satisfaction second to none. Knowing our actions will undoubtedly benefit the well being of others and our environment as a whole meets our altruistic needs that a paradigm change for a better world is within grasp.
To effect sustainable change and build resilience into our organisations we need to reach out to all our colleagues and stakeholders to stimulate behavioural changes and construct an ethos, workplace, community and world that we aspire to be part of. Of all our many tasks this can be one of the most challenging and also time consuming. How do we reach out and change minds of those who have ‘always done things this way?’
Sustainability as a concept is so wide ranging that there is something which appeals to everyone. It’s finding that individual ‘hook’ that enlightens a reason for change. Sustainability is also such a huge and varied subject with media messages so negative that the people we really wish to converse with feel overwhelm. They consider their actions futile in reversing or altering global conditions, so they switch off to the messages we are trying to instil, and carry on as usual. From Senior Management to the shop floor, our suppliers to the local community, working together we can contribute to positively effecting sustainable change.
Imagine if there was a way to reach our colleagues, that spoke in a language they understood; that was personable, engaging, flexible and cost effective that left you with the time to work on your bigger plans?
Take a look at the www.YouTree.uk programme for Sustainability and Well-being that provides people with practical and simple actions that can make a difference in the workplace but also outside of work when they return home. It individually targets and challenges change behaviour in a fun and interactive format that gets results. Ask us how!
