Vision & Values

Our Name

Let’s consider the origins of the name EcoSTEPS. It’s a combination of ‘eco-‘ and STEPS.

The word ‘eco-‘ (think ‘eco-nomics', and 'eco-logy’ for example) comes from the Greek word ‘oikos’ (home).

• The first home we have in our mind, which generates our thoughts and feelings.
• The second we have is this physical body – the temple of the spirit
• The third we have is the home where family interaction takes place
• The fourth we have is the Earth – the stage for our human family play
• The fifth is the universe – our bigger home, where the planet is located

A Flavour of EcoSTEPS

Robyne Blood is a consultant currently living in Adelaide. She has her own client base as well as contracting to McKinsey and Company as a coach, executive team facilitator and leadership program designer. She is currently participating in a Masters of Positive Organisational Development (MPOD) at Case Western University, USA. As part of that program she interviewed one of EcoSTEPS Founding Directors, Julian Crawford. The article gives some fascinating insights into the philosophies and values of EcoSTEPS.

"I particularly liked the way Julian and his cohorts have shaped an increasingly successful business around their own core values and passions.

My favourite quote was Julian’s description of his colleagues as ‘corporate refugees’.

This appeals to me as I am somewhat of one myself, but also as it gives a type of credibility to the venture as it has at core people who know the workings of organisations, but who are choosing to stand outside of them to help transform them. It was a pleasure and inspiration to interview Julian and explore EcoSTEPS. I know I am going to hear a lot more of them in the future."
