Presentation Highlights:

In this ISE seminar, you will learn the business case for embedding environmental, health and social performance into core business activities in order to be more successful rather than just ‘green’ or socially responsible.

You will also go beyond the usual business case for sustainability, by re-framing sustainability as flourishing and by introducing reflective practices as a gateway to individual wellbeing:

  • “Stilling the mind and strengthening the heart”
  • A more authentic way of being
  • A connection to one’s creative impulse and deepest source of intuition and knowing

You will come to realize that existing strategic, organizational, and operational efforts around sustainability benefit from reflective practices that lead to a greater sense of connectedness.
