ABSTRACT

This chapter came about as a result of reflecting on personal experiences and seeing an emerging pattern ‘at the margins’ of clients and colleagues wanting to express emotional responses to the unfolding recognition of the scale of change needed to bring about sustainable development and their own apparent ineffectiveness. This anecdotal starting point has been explored both through adding specific interventions to client work and training courses, and also through a more formal online anonymous survey. The results are analysed and some conclusions drawn, including suggestions for sustainable business consultants.
