Food and beverage companies have huge impacts and responsibilities. People in roles that include sustainable sourcing have commensurately huge jobs.
The Sustainable Food Lab, in partnership with the Academy for Systems Change, is now prototyping an “Impacts Leadership Lab” for about 20 early to mid-career people in these businesses. The focus is on delivery in impacts, change management and partnerships, and personal leadership capabilities.
Participants will have available:
- Annual or twice per year confidential workshops for corporate participants
- Learning journeys in the field with others from your organization as well as suppliers, leading farmers, extension and NGO experts
- Monthly peer group calls
- Access to world class mentors and experts as needed
The monthly peer group calls, among 5 and 6 people, are at the center of the program. During every call one person presents a “case,” a challenge or decision. The others let that challenge resonate for each of them, ask supportive questions, and eventually offer advice. 2017 is a prototype year for this program. Participants will identify key challenges and needs, as well as help define the frequency of events and how long the program continues.
Participants in the first group come from AB InBev, Annie’s/General Mills, Danone, Farmer’s Fridge, Frontier Coop, Heineken Mexico, Kellogg, Land O’ Lakes, Mars, McDonald’s, PepsiCo, Starbucks, Stonyfield, Target, and Unilever.
