However, sustainability requires people to learn new steps, new ways of dancing. If we are just modifying and adapting, this new dance craze is never going to catch on!
The next phase in sustainability is surely to embed it into the core ‘DNA’ of organisations. But can this ever occur without the co-operation and support of all those with a stake in the organisation? Achieving real, meaningful and long-term engagement is perhaps the next big sustainability challenge.
To do so we need to gain a better understanding of the dynamics of successful employee engagement by learning to identify, modify and adapt our communication style to the needs of particular stakeholder groups.
You are invited to an ASP and Greengauges enquiry into how to make employee engagement really work. Using the metaphor “Dancing with Stakeholders” we will create a dynamic conversation covering the following topics
Learn the Steps...
...to present the need to be sensitive to, and respectful of, differences in values, communication style and outlook when defining, building and implementing stakeholder engagement programmes.
We will use a model, “Values, Voice, Vision” (V3) to help explore this more deeply.
Take to the floor...
...to collectively explore the strengths and weaknesses of the model to better understand what really good engagement would look/feel like.
How do you get employers and employees engaged?
What are the most effective styles of communication – the appropriate Voices?
How do you create a vision? What tools/concepts do you use?
Dance the night away...
...to co-create the enquiry’s outcomes:
• What has been learnt about the principles and methods of employee engagement?
• What have we learnt about our own practice?

"A vision without a task is but a dream, a task without a vision is drudgery, a vision and a task is the hope of the world".

20th January 2011, 13:00-17:30, The Pierian Centre, Bristol.
This event is an opportunity to reflect with others on the wisdom that you most trust to take you into your most yearned for future.
It will support you in clarifying your vision of that future, your most heartfelt intentions and how your commitment can be most fully realised.
Along the way it will introduce you to the wisdom of other participants and other innovative ideas about change, leadership and sustainability.
The day will use a variety of forms, including the Way of Council. This is an ancient form that creates a ‘container’ for people to communicate with each other from the heart. At the core of Council is a willingness to hear another, communicate authentically, cross divides and reveal the deep connection between all of us. Council creates a sacred space through four basic intentions:
- To speak from the heart
- To listen from the heart - letting go of judgement and criticism
- To be spontaneous
- To respect each person’s story as sacred - keeping it safe and confidential
The Council element will be lead by Steve Onyett, an experienced clinical psychologist, facilitator and coach. (www.steveonyett.co.uk).
Cost £35 (£20 concessions). 12:45 arrival for 13:00 start – finishing at 17:30 (light refreshments provided).
