The Missing Tip #3

Here you go --

"3. Integrate sustainability thinking into the business. This can include incorporating sustainability performance into cash bonus schemes and embarking on comprehensive change management program."

Cannot agree more!  Change management is one of those things that should carry the warning:  DO NOT TRY THIS AT HOME.  

Yet, it's tremendously important.  Anyone who has ever tried to quit smoking, exercise, diet, or change any other habitual and comfortable behavior knows how challenging Change can be.  The same is true when making the transition from unconscious consumption to mindful sustainability.  Multiply it by the number of people on your team or in your organization . . . well, you get the idea.

Change Management professionals provide the tools, techniques and objectivity organizations need to make the transition without affecting productivity, morale, time and cost.
