Coaching for Sustainable Leadership

Achieving true organisational sustainability means seeing it as a mindset adopted by the whole organisation, not just a department or directorate. Using both the Barrett Model™ and Sherrington’s own 4A Model of Sustainable Leadership, we coach leadership teams to achieve a culture of sustainability across the organisation.

In 2021, Sherrington Associates commissioned Professor of Sustainability Dr Paul Beers of Derby University to complete a research paper on the subject of sustainable leadership. This work informed our definition of sustainable leadership based on an aggregated consensus model achieved through this research. We call it The 4A Model of Sustainable Leadership.

Having completed this research we now know that sustainable leadership is only achieved when leadership teams embody the right Attributes, Abilities and Awareness and who take the appropriate Actions for sustainability.

The 4A Model of Sustainability Leadership is our framework for supporting leaders and leadership teams to achieve sustainability in their organisations.


The 4A Model is a holistic representation of the most widely agreed qualities for sustainable leadership.

Dr Paul Beers, Derby University

Over the years Sherrington have developed tools and techniques to assess the qualities of sustainable leadership contained within the 4A Model. Using these systems, we can aid leaders and senior management teams to diagnose and develop their competencies for sustainable leadership. For more information contact our team.
