We have three dates in the diary for this one-day workshop, which I've been running since 2005. The day is very interactive, with everyone sharing a specific sustainability challenge which they are working on, and using various frameworks and exercises to explore and understand the challenge better.
During the workshop, people
- Hear about some theory on organisational change and approaches to change, including a scale of strategic engagement, visioning, identifying key players, choosing a change strategy, identifying barriers to change and planning first steps.
- Apply this to their own organisational sustainability challenge.
- Hear from others in a similar situation, discuss common challenges and discovering sources of further information and support.
As you’d expect, the contents have evolved since I ran the first one. But the approach is still one of making selected bits of change theory as accessible as possible to people, and giving them time to work on their own particular situation during the workshop. And everyone still gets a free copy of the workbook, so they can carry on making their own notes and using plenty more exercises and frameworks at their own pace.
If you'd like to come along, you can book through IEMA's website.
