Summary

Many books have explored how corporations can play an important role in solving the environmental challenges facing the planet. However, until now, there has been little research about sustainability leadership at the psychological level. In this audiobook, Dr. Steve Schein explores the deeper psychological motivations of sustainability leaders. He shows how these motivations relate to overall effectiveness and capacity to lead transformational change, and he explores the ways in which the complexity of sustainability is driving new approaches to leadership.

Drawing on interviews with 75 leaders in more than 40 multinational organizations and NGOs, the author explores how ecological worldviews are expressed in the context of global sustainability practice. By empirically grounding key theories from developmental psychology in sustainability leadership practice, the author encourages us to think about leadership in a different way.

A New Psychology for Sustainability Leadership is suitable for an interdisciplinary audience of social scientists, educators, corporate executives, and social entrepreneurs. The insights from this book can be usefully integrated into leadership curriculum and development programs to help the next generation of sustainability leaders respond to global challenges.

Thought provoking...

A thought provoking book which I took a lot from. I rewound some of the audio and re-listened just to get my head round some of what Steve was putting across but that was all good. Anyone that has an interest in sustainability, the environment and what makes corporate sustainability executives tick then give it a listen.

One of the best books I've ever listened to.

This is one of the best books I've ever listened to. I am going to purchase 2 copies of this book as soon I complete this review - one as a gift and one for me. This book is so important in how it will and does inform the world's sustainability leaders, educators, learners, and future students. It will develop into an important resource for my own doctoral studies and research in Educational Sustainability. I will be contacting Steve Schein asap. Thank you for publishing this book. VA
