The Mighty Heart in Business is a foundational approach that deals pragmatically with the sense of overwhelm, anxiety and grief that many people are feeling today. The online course enables individuals and organisations to improve communication, ignite leadership and learn the skills needed to contribute effectively to a better, safer world.
