Why Lean & Green Coaching?

Organizations who participate in the coaching program will receive 5 on-site coaching days. The coaching program will be customized for the organization based on its unique challenges and opportunities. While the coaching will be customized and naturally evolve over time, generally, coaching will focus on:

  • Implementing the opportunities and Go Forward Plan presented in the organization’s Lean & Green Diagnostic
  • Ensuring clear goals and objectives are set around environmental performance
  • Establishing clear KPI’s and metrics to measure environmental performance
  • Engaging employees in the initiative
  • Gaining buy-in from across the organization
  • Building clear business cases for green opportunities
  • Integrating environmental improvements with existing programs and strategies
  • Training staff and management as required
  • Setting up visual boards, communication boards etc.
  • Building internal capacity around Lean and Green
  • Developing systems to sustain and drive future improvements

On-site coaching is complemented with remote coaching calls between the on-site sessions to ensure progress. Organizations also receive tools and resources to support their specific initiatives.
