With Environmental Sustainability moving swiftly up the corporate agenda, the biggest challenge in facing Sustainability practitioners is undoubtedly engaging employees. Without buy-in, the same decisions will be made as have always been made and the organisation will stick to business as usual.
Unfortunately most employee engagement fails miserably. This is because it is created by Sustainability professionals without any consideration of the interests of key audiences, and simply passes them by.
This course introduces the unique, battle-proven concept of Green Jujitsu. In the same way a jujitsu master adjusts their techniques to exploit the strengths of their opponent, in Green Jujitsu we find the overlap between the interests of our audience and Sustainability and start our engagement there.
During the course we will cover how to identify the existing culture in the organisation and how to use that culture to engage colleagues from the front-line to the boardroom. You will get a workbook to help you apply the thinking to your own organisation at each step, reinforcing the learning and compiling an action plan for you to take away and use.
If you are serious about making Sustainability happen in your organisation (or a client's) then you must take this course.

In this session, we discuss why most employee engagement for Sustainability fails. During the exercise you will be asked to assess your own efforts.
In this session we introduce the concept of Green Jujitsu and explain why it works when other approaches fail. During the exercise you will explore the culture in your organisation (or one of your choice) - we will use this in later sessions to develop Green Jujitsu techniques.
Engaging the boardroom in Sustainability is one of the most important and difficult tasks of the Sustainability practitioner. In this session we consider how to apply Green Jujitsu in the boardroom. In the exercise you will think about engaging individual C-level directors and the boardroom as a whole.
