“Sustainability,” says Young, the co-founder of Meterhero, “is not just about running more efficiently or using less carbon. It’s about being able to sustain yourself in a future that’s going to be defined by disruption and change.” 

 

Innovation, disruption, culture transformation are all "flavors" of change confronting business today.  Strategic change programs must accompany any sustainability effort to obtain the best ROI.

Emerging Concepts and Forms of Integral Leadership: Embodying a Radically New Development Paradigm

Emerging Concepts and Forms of Integral Leadership: Embodying a Radically New Development Paradigm | Sustainable Futures | Scoop.it

# Good argument for new paradigm concepts and a vision of  "awareness-based, love-infused, presence-centered, evolutionary leadership”  (but beyond green meme concepts :-))  drawing on Steiner, Campbell, Kegan, Torbert, Wilber, etc. The article gives a solid overview over qualities, concepts and practices that are emerging and gives a taste on what a new paradigm of leadership and development "in relationship to nature, community and meaning"  could actually look like embodied, and, most importantly, scaled up.

The Courage to Change

The Courage to Change | Sustainable Futures | Scoop.it

The Courage to Change
"It is one thing to look objectively at change or to study it at a distance, in an attempt to both understand and shape it. Yet it is another thing to look at how we ourselves approach change – i.e. do we embrace change, or do we resist it? Is it exciting, or is it frightening? While the blind spots and limitations of others are often directly visible to us, it is less commonto look at our own assumptions and beliefs, our areas of discomfort and anxiety, and our fears, including the shadows that cover emotions that we would prefer to hide. This can make one feel quite vulnerable, and most people will find good reasons, consciously or unconsciously, to avoid this at all costs.” From “The Courage to Change: Adaptation from the Inside-Out” by Karen O’Brien – coming soon in Moser and Boykoff’s new book, “Successful Adaptation to Climate Change: Linking Science to Policy in a Rapidly Changing World”.http://www.routledge.com/books/details/9780415525008/   ;
