The PI Vision, Purpose and Values

Our vision is to champion, mentor, facilitate, train, coach and demonstrate that best practice social, economic and environmental sustainability strategies achieve high performance in all organisations.

Our purpose is to implement continuous purposeful innovation, learn, monitor, improve and then report on everything we do so that others can follow in our footsteps.

We achieve this by following the positive impact model which is based on research conducted in neuroscience, sociology, psychology and cybernetics that forms the hierarchal competence criteria, project road map and social impact algorithm. These also form our Ethics and Standards of Conduct which are our shared values.


Our Campaigns Are Our Intentions For Sustainability

Our Campaigns help us drive a focused strategy that brings theory into practice and hold relevance for the communities that they target and engage with. These are live projects in themselves and are constantly evolving and expanding. And that's exactly what we want them to do.

Everything we do involves people, and we respect groups of people are communities. Communities are ecosystems that require inclusivity and biodiversity to thrive. We consider human ecosystems as communities that can be structured by the characteristics and structure of thinking patterns. We ensure our strategic planning always includes all five levels that cover human levels of thinking to ensure comprehensive and healthy applied strategies are developed that have the potential to deliver the greatest social impact.


How We Work

Our strategies are intricate, complicated and extremely fast-moving with many interdependencies and connections between our Campaigns, projects, targets and emerging relationships.

We believe in expansion through partnerships. The first step to achieving success in collaborating for positive impact is to experience the ever-evolving model application through active participation on campaigns.

As a Sustainable Development Non-Executive Director, you will need to be flexible, hands-on, able to deal with complexity and able to adapt to take on adjusting accountabilities and responsivities as campaigns evolve.


Purpose of the Role

You will be responsible for building, developing and maintaining strong relationships with external and internal stakeholders including public and private sectors, in order to successfully demonstrate the competences required for collective high performance based on positive social values.

  • Contribute to shared learning cycles and commit to action that results of collective learning revolutions.
  • Contribute to understanding and documenting emerging and solidifying strategies and putting them into context of Lessons in Strategy as shared in The Learning Hub.

  • Deliver agreed actions, evaluate and report on impact in a way that meets project requirements.
  • Deliver Campaign objectives with the collaborator team, leading with excellence, transparency and integrity.

You may be required to carry out other duties that are reasonably considered to be within the scope and purpose of the role and your aptitudes.

This description reflects the current requirements of the role. As duties and responsibilities change and develop due to changes in organisational and other circumstance, so the actual duties and responsibilities will vary from the particulars of this job description.

Due to the global locations of stakeholders, special working conditions include attendance to evening meetings, events and conferences.
