What’s holding you back from winning the team over?

Why is it such a challenge to accomplish your project’s goals?

You worked hard to own the technical elements of sustainability, environmental assessment methods and tools, but have you ever been given the right leadership tools to feel confident and effectively persuasive in front of your clients and project team?


As a trainer and coach in leadership and sustainability, Virginia Cinquemani has successfully mentored sustainability professionals to find answers to these questions. Drawing from her 15 years of experience in the field, she shares tested approaches to increasing your influence and persuasion abilities. Any professional who wants to take on projects equipped with the techniques needed to win the team over, feel confident, turn negative situations into positive ones, and gain the support required to accomplish their projects’ goals will benefit from the wisdom shared in these pages.

In SustainABLE, Virginia shares the techniques necessary to gear up for success with the right mindset shift and fundamental skills of a successful sustainability professional.

A little clue: it is not about acquiring yet another technical qualification!

This book shares how to sell sustainability with integrity so that it is a win-win for everyone involved.
