Consultancies Join Forces to Deliver Premier Sustainability Training Program and Computer-Based Simulation to Fortune 1000s and Innovative Enterprises
Dallas, Texas (PRWEB) December 13, 2012
EarthPeople, LLC, a Dallas-based sustainability communications firm, announced today it is affiliating with Transitioning to Green LLC, a leader in sustainability consulting and green training, and creator of the globally-recognized “LeaderShip Development 3.O” program. This leading-edge program incorporates a proprietary “triple bottom line” business simulation in a flexible format and was recently named to Leadership 500 by Leadership Excellence. The program uniquely responds to escalating demand for executive-level sustainability training. According to research from Accenture, 93% of CEOs consider sustainability important to their company’s success, but most do not know how to embed sustainability into their company’s strategy and culture.
Transitioning to Green, in collaboration with CEO Academy, designed the LeaderShip Development 3.0 program to provide a systemic approach to developing innovative, resilient leaders in any organization. “While a number of sustainability programs focus primarily on the environmental and operational aspects of sustainability, our program uniquely focuses on equipping the leaders of tomorrow with the skills and capabilities they need to lead in a triple bottom line world,” said Jeana Wirtenberg, Ph.D., CEO of Transitioning to Green. “We are eager to work with high-caliber consultancies to bring the extraordinary benefits of this program to more organizations. We are extremely pleased that EarthPeople selected our program to represent to its clients.”
“While presenting at a recent conference produced by the Society for Industrial and Organizational Psychology, I became deeply impressed with the magnitude of research under way on sustainability from a talent and human resources perspective,” said Anna Clark, president of EarthPeople, LLC. “We immediately sought out a provider of training programs that could help companies adapt to 21st century challenges, and identified Transitioning to Green as a pioneer in the field of human sustainability. I am delighted to work with Dr. Wirtenberg, a highly-respected scholar-practitioner, and her team to reach EarthPeople’s clients and other companies with this extraordinary training opportunity.”
The concept for Leadership Development 3.0 was covered in the June 2012 issue of Leadership Excellence: Triple-Bottom-Line: This is Leadership Development 3.0. The program blends presentations, exercises and a competitive business simulation to accelerate the development of leaders’ acquisition of sustainability principles and best practices. The focus is on developing those people who may come from any function and any level who can best lead organizations into a sustainable future.
