Are you a person wanting to make a difference in the world? If so, I invite you to download the following FREE STUFF. These articles and presentations are based on my twenty-five year plus professional career in the private sector (Cummins Engine, GE Capital), academe (Yale), non-profits (the CT Center for School Change), small companies (Celtic Energy) and working with solo entrepreneurs (Andrew Winston, Sustainability author).

In addition, please sign up for our monthly eZine in which will feature a host of materials based on the work that my colleagues and I have undertaken the past fifteen months at the Case Western, Weatherhead School of Business, Fowler Center for Sustainable Value. In that work our focus has been on the nexus of Sustainability and Spirituality. Spirituality is defined most broadly as: “Flourishing” on the personal, organizational and planetary levels.

Creating a Sustainable Work Culture

Are you trying to create socially and environmentally sustainable products or services but find that people in your workplace aren’t working in ways that are either personally or organizationally sustainable? Office politics, short-term goals, non-collaborative work styles, win/lose mindsets, and fear can be the norm in all sorts of workplaces, regardless of the product or service provided. So what can be done to create a sustainable, high performance work culture at your office where these problems are not the norm? What we covered:

  • Assess how sustainable your own workplace culture is;
  • Deepen your understanding of what it takes to address unproductive mindsets and work styles that drag everyone down and erode your enterprise;
  • Learn about a powerful way your office can build a more sustainable, high performing work culture that is essential for delivering sustainable products and services.

Evaluating Your Past Year and Making the Next Year Your Best Year Yet

Are you tired of year-end analyses where you look at your achievements against your goals….and yawn? And are you tired of making New Year’s resolutions that never stick past about January 3rd? If so, you are invited to join me for a unique tele-seminar designed to give you a chance to make sense of last year and set intentions for your next year in a whole new way than you have done before. In it, you will be invited to explore for yourself such things as:

  • What really matters to you
  • Big risks you’ve taken this year
  • Significant learning and growth you have experienced
  • What it will take to create more joy and “flow” in your life
  • What is holding you back from having what you most want
  • Overcoming your own roadblocks

Through a guided set of questions, you will have a chance to contemplate and write down your own insights into these and other topics in the privacy of your own office or home. By the end of our tele-seminar, you will have created a framework that will help you make new sense of what the past year really meant for you, as well as what’s possible for you in your next year. In the process, we’ll change your usual year-end “yawn” to a year-end “a-ha”.

In order to get the most value from this call, you will need to be writing your own answers to questions I will be asking. It therefore will require your full attention, and not lend itself to casual participation.
