Kathryn A. Cooper
President & Chief Learning Officer
Sustainability Learning Centre
In the face of a widespread employee disengagement problem (apathy, in other words), sustainability presents an exceptional opportunity for companies looking to improve their lot. The pursuit of sustainability brings with it special conditions through which you can begin to align employee values with a company’s higher purpose.
Employee engagement requires an understanding of our “thinking, feeling, willing, social self” and how organizational management systems can create an authentic culture of engagement.
Kathryn A. Cooper will begin the session by introducing the topic and offering her expertise. She will then proceed to begin a dialogue with participants for examining a “learning engagement” model to help identify the organizational systems that foster an authentic engagement culture.
Participants will be encouraged to share their unique challenges too, seeking the advice of their peers. The idea is that by the end of the dialogue, each participants shall have a clearer vision and strategies in hand to better advance sustainability within their respective organizations.
What is SPRiNG?
