A New Psychology for Sustainability Leadership: An Ecological Viewpoint
with Steve Schein

When: Wednesday, March 16, 2016

What makes a sustainability leader tick?

During the last decade, the sustainability position in multinational corporations has grown considerably in influence. Beginning with the appointment of the first Chief Sustainability Officer in 2004, today there are senior sustainability executives in hundreds of the world's largest multinational companies. In many cases, the Chief Sustainability Officer now reports directly to the CEO. These are highly influential individuals inside today's global corporations.

Although thousands of sustainability related books, articles, and corporate reports have been published in recent years, today little is known about the deeper psychological motivations of corporate sustainability leaders. Although much has been written about their accomplishments, we don't know enough about their personal histories, their deeper motivations, and how they think. We don't know enough about how they think about nature, leadership, resistance, and change.
