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 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.

The period 2015-2018 has demonstrated, that whilst many individual (country, company, community) initiatives and actions are and have been taken- in aggregate, it is not good enough, and it leaves a wide and widening gap between of what we would like and expect to see, and what is happening in real life, and on the ground.

And it is this aggregate that counts- on our planetary boundaries, and on the ways we relate between each other.

So the Theme for Year 2019 is:

How can we “smarten-up”- organize and transform ourselves in order to support and achieve the above objectives?

Year 2019 Theme(s): Smartening-Up

“In the beginner’s mind there are many possibilities,
but in the expert’s there are few.”- 
Shunryu Suzuki (1905-1971)

1. Capacity Building and Outreach- Energy, UN SDGs, Paris Climate Agreement

In very simple terms- one could state that we –the energy sector-  and over the coming 15-30 years have the following three and common goals:

  • Support the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
  • Implement the Paris Agreement.
  • Build Sustainable Societies

and whereby Energy is further closely linked to the Geo-politics of Emotions, Security and not the least our Economies and Societies.

Its time to agree that the present international working approach and policies towards Energy, Climate Change and the UN SDGs-  is not (yet) working- as we like , will only bring us so far, and unfortunately not anywhere close where we best see ourselves:

Energy and Economies Free of Concerns.

The invitation is see with open (beginners)  minds, to find “the better tone of voice”, the better organisational “forms and formats”-, and “the more simpler and direct ways to define and drive change”  and by which we can integrate corporate, national and civic interests, formulate the (energy-economy) change programs- that makes sense, and re-engineer the present “institutionalized modes of operandi” in the sector and into our ministries: to support a true step-change and transit towards new energy architectures- locally, regionally and internationally. 

Based on now 10 year practice experience, and from executive classrooms , conferences , to ministries and companies boardrooms- in the East and in the West, the North and South:

I know we can & Let us rise to our occasion!

 

2. Strategic Consultancy, Coach and Care:

– on Strategic Choice: Nations and Company Directions. Managing the Balance and Mix on Worldviews, Economies, Corporate Functions and Roles,  and Lifestyles.
– on Energy Transition ( re. e.g. Electrification) : advancing our present working approaches towards the realization of (new) Energy Architectures that we want.
– on building the Better Bridges in our trade and trade relations on New Energy Architecture, Climate Agreement and UN SDGs (Human Development, Economy and Nature Conservation)

Workshops and Outreach (& Speaking Engagements)

Outreach

A contribution to the Sustainable Development/ Sustainable Energy agenda

This open conversation support 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.

These new-styled open conversations re. workshops are fresh and specifically launched for the years 2018 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 system change challenge and transformations that we need: delivering projects and programs befit to the Global Change Challenge, the UN SDGs and sustainable societies needs.

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 or country 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 and befit to the times we see ourselves in. 

Framing

In this format we could organize joint-workshops with the various actors, experts 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.

Action Teams 

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 and action teams-   with you – as an alternative to the established consulting practices.These action-teams – can help to scout, frame and realize fresh and  relevant opportunities of change: within your organization, your customers and and internationally.

Together we can staff dedicated working groups/ action-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.
