and Sustainability

Facilitating culture change in businesses; strategy and leadership development; sustainability reporting; sustainability education;  managing community and environment focused projects; working with new economic models; using story of place and regenerative frameworks to enhance the social, economic, environmental and cultural wellbeing of a place.

Culture Change

 

Culture is a huge catalyst for change in organisations and communities. It connects people to each other and the place where they co-exist. It is largely intangible, constantly evolving, shaped by nature and landscape, and influenced by everyone associated with an organisation or community both past and present. Therefore, each organisation, group or team has its own inherent culture. 

Like a garden, culture goes through seasons and needs to be designed and nurtured to support it´s people´s wellbeing, achieve desired outcomes, and have a healthy impact on the environment. Culture can not be copied and pasted from place to place. This is why it is fundamental to empower communities and regions to self-determine the pathways forward to realising their vision for the generations that follow. ​

 

I´d like to offer you the expertise, tools, and frameworks to create a culture which is resilient to external impacts and can support transformative internal change. I work closely with leaders, employees and community members using practices such as restorative circles to understand where the current culture is degenerative and needs to shift. 

Offerings: 
 

  • Restorative practice and restorative circles

  • Conflict resolution

  • Helping businesses refine or redefine their vision, mission, values 

  • Business development and strategy 

  • Relationship building externally and Team building internally 

  • Workshop facilitation

  • Culture change in businesses and communities

 

 

Regenerative Practice

 

Regenerative practice asks us to look beyond preserving the current state of the environment for future generations, and calls us to design our lives, businesses, communities, institutions etc. in ways that are life-giving i.e. creating conditions conducive to life. 

My work is guided by listening to the natural world, people´s stories, ancestral connections, and the spiritual essence of land, creating space for the creative potential of organisations, systems and communities to be realised in dialogue and dynamic relationship with living systems.

 

One role of a regenerative practitioner, as I understand it, is to be a mirror, reflecting back to the project team what they are perceiving, seeing, hearing and feeling, so they can then co-sense what is needed in their place, organisation or community, as these are all understood as living beings too. 

Taking a regenerative approach to projects means using systems thinking and design to understand the projects place in both it´s local ecosystem, as well as the earth. I help project teams to navigate complexity, taking a curious and playful approach, and listen deeply to the story told by the land and it´s people. 

Offerings: 

  • Generating a story of place with a business or community to understand how their project or impact can best serve that place 

  • Regenerative practice education - moving from sustainability to regeneration 

  • Systems thinking and design 

  • Workshop facilitation 

  • Project impact assessment - environmental, social, cultural, economic

  • Collaborating with architects, engineers, urban planners, landscape architects, ecologists, and organisational change specialists

As a sustainability consultant I work with businesses to help them ensure that their practices including their supply chains are as sustainable and transparent as possible.

My experience is particularly in the water industry, working with local and national government in Aotearoa, New Zealand, however I am also keenly interested in agriculture, food systems and textiles.
