Smart Employee Engagement & Culture Change Using Green Jujitsu

Culture change is probably the single biggest challenge to businesses wanting to embrace sustainability. This session shows you why what most people do is doomed to failure and what you should do instead.

Our Green Jujitsu approach throws engagement on its head, chucking away all that wimpy green imagery and making Sustainability relevant to employee’s day job – and we’ve proven it’s worth in organisations such as BAE Systems, the BBC, the NHS, News UK (i.e. The Times, The Sun) and Johnson Matthey.

Here’s what we cover in the session:

• The importance of employee engagement and culture change
• Why “Switch It Off” doesn’t work
• What is Green Jujitsu and why it is so powerful
• Applying Green Jujitsu to your organisation
• The three components of facilitating major change
• Engaging emotionally with your staff – finding out what makes them tick
• Making good behaviour easy and bad behaviour difficult
• The HR angle

Your tutor is respected green business expert Gareth Kane. Gareth is the owner of Terra Infirma Ltd and has worked with hundreds of organisations from micro businesses to trans- national corporations to improve their environmental and economic performance. Gareth has authored five Sustainability books, including one on Green Jujitsu, and has trained thousands of people in green business issues.

Green Academy sessions are run on-line using the Webex platform which runs on all major operating systems. You will need either a headset for your computer or access to a phone line for audio.

You will receive a workbook (in pdf format) with your sign up instructions before the session. During the session itself, you will be invited to complete sections of the workbook which will allow you to apply the concepts to your organisation and provide you with a ready-to-go action plan.
