To continue in a way that allows you to continue indefinitely
Everything is change so while those big moments of transition come around now and again there are periods of slower, almost imperceptible change in-between. In some ways these moments are when we are a little vulnerable. Being static in a changing world lasts only so long right? Sustain is how we help you do all of those things mainstream thinking suggests; be efficient, be effective, work the machine, turn the handle. We’ll help you to keep an eye on the small changes and the big. To know your space and feel your way. We’ll challenge you to adopt values that empower your organisation with new purpose; regeneration, diversity and sufficiency.
Ecosystems because organisations exist within them. The things they do draw on those ecosystems, rely on them and impact on them. We’d like our organisations to remain and sustain us in the future. To do that we need to align them now with the ecosystems they are a part of before resources become so scare that the ecosystems fail and so expensive that our organisations fail.
Sustain often involves some of the following:
- Understanding where you are headed
- Taking a look at what you are doing
- And how you are doing it
- Learning a little about your team
- Exploring your systems and processes
- Understanding where the money comes from
- Looking into where the money goes
- Assessing ways to align with nature
- Exploring actions to maximise positive impact
- Discussing options for positive change
- Reviewing fitness for the future
- Developing simple actions plans
