Make Change Work For You

The CSR Training Institute Can Help

The world is changing. Rapidly.

Sustainability, social responsibility, ESG, Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), and reputational capital have become critical success factors for businesses and organizations of all types worldwide.

We help you turn challenges into unique opportunities, and create a strategic competitive advantage to drive success and facilitate a synergistic alignment between business value, social value, and environmental stewardship.

“Creating value and sustainable competitive advantage are at the core of all that we do.

Social Responsibility and Sustainability SWOT

A strong SWOT (strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats) framework prompts managers to see opportunity and competive advantage, and to think about anything that could potentially impact the success of a new project or organization. Failure to consider a key area could lead to poor business decisions.

Building a strategic SWOT that focuses on Social Responsibility and Sustainability will engage you and your leadership and staff, bring them up to speed on issues and trends from a local and global perspective, and work with you to identify current and future issues, opportunities and challenges facing you and your organization.

Our focus in this session is to use this information to work with your organization to identify and prioritize strategic business value propositions and develop practical and executable action plans to help you be more strategic, more effective and more impactful so you can survive and thrive,

Integrating the SDGs into Your Strategy

The 17 Sustainable Development Goals that were passed unanimously by the United Nations have become the de-facto development framework for countries and progressive organizations worldwide.

Integrating the SDGs into your business strategy is an effective framework to help your organization create competitive advantage, have a greater impact, increase shareholder value, and develop a sustainable competitive advantage by creating social value and environmental stewardship.

Our focus in this session is to help you realize what you are already doing to support the SDGs through your ongoing operations and projects while getting more value through your efforts.

Sustainability Partnership Strategy and Analysis

Sustainability and social responsibility lend themselves to productive, engaging and mutually beneficial partnerships that produce business value, social impact and facilitate environmental stewardship.

However, many partnerships either don’t get developed, end in frustration or don’t realize their full potential in creating organizational and social value.

Our focus in this session is to help your organization assess, negotiate, implement, manage, rescue and when necessary terminate partnerships. With over two decades of experience with sustainability partnerships of all kinds, we’ll help you create value for both partners so you can better make a positive impact in the world.

Executive Coaching and Support

Sustainability leadership can be fun, rewarding, exciting and productive, creating organizational value and career growth.  But, sometimes it’s not.

Sometimes leaders need experienced support, guidance, and mentorship to help them apply their experience and insights to lead and drive sustainability and social responsibility in their organization.

Our focus is to give executives a place to ask questions and share ideas, strategically assess opportunities, and evaluate strategies. Our decades of experience in sustainability, teaching, and coaching, help to facilitate professional growth, create an impact, drive results and achieve career and organizational performance.

Sustainability Policy Strategy and Implementation

Sustainability and social responsibility can have far-reaching effects, creating organizational value, societal impact, internal cohesion, customer engagement and enhancing stakeholder relationships. It can also waste money, sidetrack initiatives, create internal discord and distract an organization.

Sustainability success doesn’t happen by accident. It stems from overall leadership and is supported by effective policy, strategy and implementation.

Our focus in this session is to help you create a framework for a social responsibility and sustainability strategy that integrates policy, strategy, implementation, management and impact measurement to drive organizational and career results, produce more value and turn it into a competitive advantage.

Contact Prof. Wayne Dunn directly for more information.

Impact Measurement and Management

Creating more value, doing it more efficiently and achieving it with fewer resources are key to organizational and career success in all areas of business, including sustainability and CSR. Impact measurement and management are critical for organizations and leaders wanting to succeed in today’s fast-paced climate.

Most organizations have well-developed systems and processes for measuring business performance and impact but often lag on measuring social impact and its relation to business value.

Our focus in this session is to work with executives, leaders, and managers to create more effective management, budgeting, and financing of programs to bring management discipline, value and impact efficiency to their sustainability investments and activities.
