Leading the Necessary Revolution: Building Alignment in Your Business for Sustainability
A conversation with Peter Senge and Daniel Goleman. Sustainability is the biggest business opportunity in 50 years - it's starting now, and the landscape will never be the same. Some managers clearly see their chance to be ahead of this curve. The single biggest challenge facing them now is creating alignment - explaining their vision in a compelling, motivational way - to get from the conceptual stage to critical action.
Peter Senge can help. He's been helping organizations learn for decades - and he's found that no matter where you are in your firm, you can drive the shift to sustainability - if you have the right approach, tools, and vision.
Leading the Necessary Revolution will help you seize this unprecedented opportunity.
- Getting key decision-makers on board, and to take the next steps
- Avoiding common errors of sustainability advocates
- Finding and bridging gaps in mental models
- Building hybrid synthesis with NGOs, governments, and other businesses
