Stuck in a job or career track that is not satisfying your sustainability passion?  Our sustainability consulting is frequently asked: How do you climb the ‘green’ ladder of success from your current roll or in searching for that next great opportunity? 

Traditional business practices would tell you to be self-sufficient and work your way up through a combination of individual drive, determination, and a lot of hard work.  An alternative approach is to raise your visibility in the organization.  This will expose you to other people in the organization, gain a broader perspective of potential green opportunities, and allow you to identify and refine your leadership qualities.
•    Step outside the confines of your specific position: Become involved in projects and activities that embrace sustainability concepts and promote business sustainability.  If your company has a business sustainability plan, this is a great place to take eco action.
•    Expand your corporate green network: engage in internal business activities, networking events, internal and external training, professional organizations, and business communities.  An easy option is to engage in your company’s community outreach programs.  Click here to continue reading.
