Rosemary Randall helps organizations deliver on the deeper sustainability agenda and is a popular speaker on the psychology of climate change.
Whether you are a community organization struggling with outreach and communication or a business thinking about employee engagement I can help you understand the deeper dynamics of behaviour change and advise on programmes that will give you real leverage. My approach is based on paying attention to the emotional dimension of engagement: treating people as people, listening, understanding, developing participation and ownership of change.
Workshops – on understanding audiences, talking one-to-one, explaining technical issues, working beyond the comfort zone, loss, anxiety and change, strategies for communication and engagement.
Consultancy – individualized programmes to help you deliver the change you want.
Carbon Conversations is the award-winning carbon-reduction programme I designed for community groups which is proving increasingly popular with business. Judged ‘one of the 20 best climate change solutions’ at the 2009 Manchester festival it helps individuals halve their carbon footprints through paying attention to their emotional conflicts and deeper motivations. See www.carbonconversations.org for details of the programme and contact me directly if you would like me to bring it to your organisation.
