Are your personal emissions toxic?

A 6 point check for “toxic seriosity”

It’s easy to get passionate about sustainability – but is your message EFFECTIVE? How do you know whether you’re creating action – or whether you’re teaching helplessness? Here’s a quick check on what you’re messaging and how you’re pushing it.

  • When I talk about environmental issues, I talk about the catastrophic potential for the ecosystem and the human race:
    • all the time
    • regularly
    • occasionally
    • never
  • When I talk about environmental issues, I talk about the profitable, rewarding business models, technological advances and opportunities being implemented around the world:
    • all the time
    • regularly
    • occasionally
    • never
  • When I talk about environmental issues, I talk about the ongoing and complete lack of action on the part of those people who I believe are responsible for fixing the future:
    • all the time
    • regularly
    • occasionally
    • never
  • When I talk about sustainability in business, I talk about reporting, obligation and incremental efficiency:
    • all the time
    • regularly
    • occasionally
    • never
  • When I talk about sustainability in business, I talk about new strategic supply chain models like Blue Economy, Circular Economy, Industrial Ecology and others:
    • all the time
    • regularly
    • occasionally
    • never
  • When I talk about sustainability solutions, I talk about concrete case studies and include local examples of success:
    • all the time
    • regularly
    • occasionally
    • never – I don’t talk about solutions

So how do you think you went?   Are you teaching helplessness by continuously messaging a permanent, pervasive, personal catastrophe?  Are you propagating the myth that “nothing’s happening”?   How do you rate yourself on knowledge of the emerging paradigm shifts of regenerative thinking?

Where are your knowledge gaps?

  1. Do you need to know more about the business-shaking new economics of the regenerative economy?
  2. Do you need smarter tools for turning new ideas into adopted practices?
  3. Do you need to up your levels of personal effectiveness?
