The Seven Generations Workshop
Leading companies and organizations of the future will be those that meet the demands of their investors and customers while integrating values that protect their employees, communities and the environment in all that they do.
Developing environmentally sustainable values and activities throughout an organization is an ongoing and challenging process that must permeate the whole organization.
Our process gives license to the visionary and inspirational leader in each one of us without ever losing touch with the real world. Through our relationships with key local and international organizations, we have developed the materials and processes that allow us to provide the support, resources and inspiration for those in leadership positions who must face and manage the challenge of moving their organization or community along a path leading to environmental sustainability.
