- achieving sustainable change by
aligning attitudes, values and purposes
The message is clear – radical change is needed in the way we do business for our organisations to remain viable in the decades to come
Three changes are afoot for business: depleting resources and raw materials; the rise in expectations of investors, stakeholders and customers; and the increase in transparency in the way organisations conduct their business. All combine to make sustainability an imperative for 21st century business.
Yet with all the information, statistics and future scenarios available at the click of a button, why is it that making the change can be so difficult?
Most change programmes concentrate on changing structures, systems and processes. These approaches are often not successful in sustaining change on their own because human beings are involved in making the decisions and implementing the changes. Motivation for changing behaviour is not based on information or instruction alone. To a large extent it is based on values and attitudes.
Attitudinal Intelligence is 'one thing that changes everything'. Rooted in the major psychological breakthroughs of the 20th century it recognises attitude as the primary force that drives behaviour, emotion and results.
Interaction UK and the Association of Sustainability Practitioners invite you to an interactive, experiential workshop where we will explore together the role of attitudes (mindsets, beliefs, expectations) in the engagement of your organisation’s leaders and stakeholders with the sustainability agenda.
