That’s a Wrap!

2022 has been a year to remember! We are so grateful to each and every one of you who connected with and supported ASI this year. We look forward to growing our reach and impact even further in 2023.

This is a special newsletter – it’s a wrap and a summary of ASI’s work throughout the year. We’ve included a blog, The Ecology of Leadership: What Nature can Teach us About Adaptive Leadership, an announcement of new Custom Engagement partners, a Thank-You, and a wee visual recap of 2022 at ASI. Thank you again for your commitment to ASI and to the building of Transition Leadership!

The Ecology of Leadership

Thank you for your input

In October we asked Sustainability Professionals from across the country to share their thoughts (and rate the thoughts on others) related to the question: What would help you have more impact in your work? 

We received a total of 59 responses from professionals representing a variety of sectors and experience levels. We are incredibly grateful to everyone who took the time to help us learn about the pain points experienced by this particular profession. Thank you!

Please watch for a summary blog report in January – we’ll share what we learned, and what ASI is planning to do to support Sustainability Professionals.

Custom Engagements

We have been thrilled to support two new Custom Engagement clients recently with both in-person and online work, supporting them towards their social impact and climate action goals.

At BC Housing, ASI has recently hosted in-person workshops designed for team-building and strategic planning for both the Strategic Business Operations & Performance team as well as the Communications Branch Leadership Team. We’ll continue to support the Communications Branch with team planning into early 2023.

At Technical Safety BC, the Climate Action Team has engaged us to support them with a series of online workshops aimed at enhancing the culture and adoption of climate action within the organization. ASI is also conducting a peer scan of comparable organizations and their approaches to climate-related change management to inform a summary report with recommendations for the next steps.

We’re always looking for new organizations to support. Please get in touch if you’d like to discuss your organization’s needs.
