Ecosomatic Development Programs
Ecosomatic development programs take into account the organization in its entirety. They are custom designed programs that will produce desired changes in culture, leadership development, collaboration, team cohesion, engagement, communication, accountability, and conflict resolution. Programs can include all or parts of this list.
I look forward to being in conversation with you about the program that most fits your needs.
Why Ecosomatic Development?
Development programs are a part of the business environment. Studies show that many organizations are checking the box without high expectations of change (see What Makes Development Programs Effective below). Ecosomatic Development promises change due to its wholistic orientation, with an emphasis on current world conditions. As such, many organizations worldwide are orienting around the current condition of our planet. Good programs are in place and many environmentally friendly activities are happening. But it is also obvious that many organizations are giving lip service to "environmental activities," but not really doing anything, and there are a number of companies that are doing it well. I want to suggest that more needs to be done, and sooner. I am curious that if more is not done sooner, will it make a difference to be doing what is currently being done?
An Ecosomatic orientation is a reshaping of an organizations culture. What if every organizational decision is first passed through the filter of environmental impact? This does not lessen other concerns - people and profit - it reshapes priorities. If our current crisis is at the perilous place declared by our scientist, can we wait?
Defining an Organizational Culture
Many of the best leadership and organizational gurus have suggested for years, that defining the culture is a defining element of a successful business. Culture is defined as "the shared values, attitudes, behaviors, and standards that make up a work environment." What if a chosen culture for an organization included a more robust orientation of environmental concerns, that the culture continually asks about impact when actions are taken and decisions are made, a culture that insists this question inform their responses? What if, at least for the short term, environmental concerns rose to the top?
