This Wednesday (at noon Pacific time) we’ll preview the AI that we’ve trained on four years of LIving Between Worlds conversations. Please join us to kick the tires, run its through its paces, and guide us on where (and whether) to go from here. Click here for details.

It didn’t take long after the COP28 Climate conference closed for the analyses to start to fly. One person even had a book-length report out within hours. The perspectives ranged widely, as you might expect for something so complex and controversial.

  • #COP28 was a success, a disappointment, a failure, an abject failure, a #copout.
  • It was doomed from the beginning by having Sultan al-Jaber, the head of the UAE national oil company, as president. Or, only al-Jaber could have navigated the resistance of the fossils (the oil companies and the Petro states) to any substantive agreement.
  • The call for “a transition from fossil fuels“ – without specific goals, or enforcement mechanisms – is significant. Or empty, and a long way from any commitment to “phase out” fossil fuels…or even to abolish them. (Note: We didn’t “phase out“ slavery.)

If you’ve ever considered a coaching/mentoring relationship with me, this might be a perfect time.

Why would you? Well, as one client said, “Having Gil as a coach has helped me focus on what is most important to my current and future selves, and to take concrete actions to bolster both.” And in the words of another, our work together was “one of the best business investments I’ve made, ever.”

Plus, if you contract your 2024 program this week, your first month is free.

(What’s the difference between coaching and mentoring? I’m glad you asked! Coaches are typically skilled in fostering personal development and results, honing in on specific objectives or capabilities through structured support and accountability. Mentors share wider, experience-driven counsel and insights, often in a more informal, enduring engagement. With me, you get both. Plus legendary thought leadership in the sustainability/ESG/regeneration/climate world. Plus unlimited access to Plural’s “mood gym.”)
