Questions I love to use (and gathered by working with great peers and mentors): What is your definition of sustainability? What is, with reference to this definition, your gap to sustainability? What are you doing, at the strategic level of the organization, to bridge that gap?
… And: How do you make sure your actions are leverage points to transform your system? What if people don’t mind change, but they do mind being changed? What if people are not led by managers but by good ideas?
