The path to becoming a fully regenerative organisation, namely doing your bit to enable people and planet to flourish, can start wherever the greatest focus is right now: customers, your workforce, your suppliers.
It can start with your products, and making their packaging recyclable, enabling customers to live sustainable lives. And it can start with becoming a BCorp. What is important is to understand the concept and to get on the journey!
Case Study 1
Launching a new global publication for film makers, Ron Prince, Global Editor was seeking to differentiate its offer from the competition. He was inspired by the notion that the magazine could play its role not only to inform and interest its readers, but to be in service to them and what creativity they wanted to express at whatever stage in their career they were, and whatever context they were in.
“When it came to launching a new magazine for professional filmmakers, Paul’s regenerative framework really helped us think through what I believe is our unique offer to our readers. It is also very powerful and inspirational to my team.”Ron Prince
Case Study 2
The energy sector is about to take on a huge share of the responsibility to enable the planet to thrive for future generations. In 2015 the UK utility company Npower was the lowest performer of all the UK’s energy suppliers, facing constant complaints from customers and pressure from the regulator. Chris Thewlis, now Chief Operating Officer knew the only way to improve was to connect to the good will of the workforce, their spirit and desire to do a good job for the customer and to enable them, not management, to solve the myriad of detailed internal problems with processes and systems. Of 40 suppliers in the marketplace Npower is now No. 2, the biggest transformation in the sector in recent times.
“Whenever I stopped to reflect on what I did and why, because it’s not how I would have done it before, I realised it was because of the change leadership training with you and your colleagues.”Chris Thewlis
