Event Description

- 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.

Questions to be addressed

  • As someone who holds responsibility for the sustainability agenda, do you find that there are barriers in the leadership of your organisation that impede your ability to move forward?
  • What difference would it make to your sustainability targets and aspirations if the leaders in your organisation were fully engaged with your ideas and recommendations?
  • Do you want to learn how attitudes, values and purpose enable culture and behaviour change that is sustainable over time?

The workshop will give us

  • An experience of how attitude impedes leadership for sustainability
  • A better understanding of the leadership issues organisations grapple with in relation to sustainability
  • An understanding of the connection between attitudes, values and purposes in sustaining change in organisations

This workshop is  for leaders, decision makers and influencers in both the public and private sectors.
