Year 2015 has been a Pivot Year in the international order.

First of all, and at the end of 2015, we have seen and witnessed the Climate Change agreement in Paris.

Secondly, and in September of 2015, the UN has agreed and embarked on a ground-breaking program of capacity and capability building in the realms of Sustainable Development.

Thirdly, and not the least, Pope Francis published his encyclical Laudato Si – with his call to humanity to better care for our Common Home, Creation and the dignity and respect for every human being.

In all of the above – Stewardship over these transformational programs- in a global, local- government, business and societal setting- is a new  (integrated) leadership role to learn.

In essence –  a call for a  “more generous and deeper caring” for our shared Common Home and Common Creation, – in all that we do- and in all that we seek...

Only by an open and honest dialogue, enquiry and conversations between ourselves- on said subjects – can we expect to see ourselves on these better ways:

Changing Lives. Making the world a better place of Peace and All Good.

“Every Company and Every Energy Architecture in this world can be improved upon in order to raise the availability, affordability and sustainability of energy to all”.- Adriaan Kamp, 2015

In very simple terms- one could state that the Energy Sector – and over the coming 15-30 years has the following invitations:

  • Support the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
  • Implement the Paris Agreement.
  • Enable the rise of Sustainable Societies, Build Vibrant Economies (with meaningful jobs)  and provide Energy to our Economies (‘Balanced (Green) Growth’).

Next to the other important elements- the day-to-day:

  • Strategy, Operation and Execution Performances in (Energy) Corporates (Oil, Gas, Utilities, etc.)- in good times, and in more demanding times.

So the Theme for Year 2017 is simple:

How can we organize ourselves in order to support and achieve the above objectives?

 

Education, Workshops and Outreach (Speaking Engagements)

(Executive Energy) Education and Outreach

A contribution to the Sustainable Development/ Sustainable Energy agenda

This open conversation/lecture series helps leaders and leadership teams to reflect on their role(s)- to build “the value case” for business and organisational change, and to see clear and attractive opportunity pathways forwards, whilst also helping to progress their position and relationships towards their organization, the stakeholder community, the wider world and themselves.

This new-styled series is fresh and specifically launched for the years 2017 and beyond- to help the business professionals, knowledge partners and decision makers to partner and operate in a responsible and responsive way across to the change challenge we need: delivering projects and programs befit to the 21st century and sustainable societies needs.

Laudato Si! Leadership  (Workshops, Outreach, Speaking Engagements)

Go to Laudato Si! Leadership workshops

In the fall of 2016, I received the invitation to come for a brief working period into Assisi.

Assisi is best known as the birthplace of St. Francis of Assisi, the Patron Saint of Italy, of Ecology, Founder of the Franciscan Order, and one of the most popular Saints in the Catholic Church.

Assisi is also the place where in 1986- the world’s first inter-religious peace prayers were being held. : the birth of the spirit of Assisi.- of Peace and All Good.

Assisi is now also known, and connected with Pope Francis, who has given name to his Papacy and received inspiration from St. Francis.

I was here to design, author and/or co-create some new thoughts and bridges between the spirit of Assisi and the words of Pope Francis Encyclical Laudato Si! with that of our modern world and days of Energy and the UN Sustainable Development Agenda.

To see some new opportunities for our leadership ways- yet un-explored- in and between ourselves and in our human talent and global leadership development programs.

To see some new bridges between the lessons from Laudato Si! (Pope Francis) for our modern days business and government leadership.

In essence, the invitation we have today is to see to blend our consciousness and care for deep Peace, deep humanity and deep ecology with our more mainstream economics and politics- at play.

As a start for our open conversation and some possibility thinking, I have drafted a first outline publication- with the title and theme: tales of conversion – for leaders in Business and Governments

Consulting

Consulting. coaching and Advise

Leadership over business and corporations, today-– requires a new balancing act:  attuning “corporate strategies, business innovation and organizational forms” with that of the “ dynamic context change” they are in, and the global planetary, community and sector responsibilities we may carry or see.

Leaders are requested to re-balance established business believes and performances with the new (societal) needs or demands “seen or experienced” in the economy, technology space, society or nature.

Our practice helps leaders and leadership teams to reflect on their role- and to see clear and attractive opportunity pathways forwards, define the better projects, achieve and improve on company goals- whilst also helping to progress their position and relationships towards their organization, the stakeholder community, the wider world and themselves.

We are organized to help leaders and organizations in their process of organizational and culture change.

Our practice is specifically focused on (business) leaders who aspire to lead by a more conscious and more inclusive leadership form- befit to the 21st century. 

Framing

In this format we could organize joint-workshops with the various actors and stakeholders relevant to its conception and process. A one or 2- day follow-up workshop could bring much enthusiasm, drive and spirit into raising the bar, and preparing the leaders of the community to connect and accept that change and opportunity is possible, achievable and a good-step forwards. It can gain as such it’s role, function and position within your practice context and international community of customers.  A combination of an Opportunity Framing[1]  with more in-depth listening and visiting tour with relevant parties within and outside could be a great two-step approach in this situational setting.

Obviously- the first blueprints and plans (opportunity scope, etc.) for this will be be used in this workshop for the community of leaders to work with and decide on.

ExpertTeams (Analysing/ Supporting)

Our open practice has established relationships with the high-end senior representatives in academy, institutes and corporations[2] and engage(s) itself with experienced quality-elite personnel which can blend the global with the local, and which can help you to define your balance between society, economy and nature (sustainability).As such- we can orchestrate high-end, high- quality, independent consultancy teams  – ‘ expert-teams-   with you – as an alternative to the established consulting practices.These expert-teams – can help to scout and frame fresh and  relevant opportunities of change: within your organization, your customers and and internationally.

Together we can staff dedicated working groups/ expert-teams by experienced professionals from different industry groups, different sectors, different professional and cultural backgrounds and perspectives- and which can truly help you and your customer needs: from strategy to delivery.

Business Blueprinting

The EFOW practice has developed a fresh and strong process-methodology to help customers to embrace and organize energy transition, sustainable development and climate change.

From Strategy to Execution and Organization.[3]

Depending on our level of conversation, we could see that we could potentially come to a working agreement where our practice helps you to Build & BluePrint this knowledge into a Business Process and Global Platforms and Practices to scale.[4]

[1] Opportunity Framing is a structured methodology borrowed from the Oil Industry and which can be made to use to map and roadmap UN Sustainable development Integration, transition and transformation programs
