The Heart of a Leader 6-hour Workshop is designed to help organizations by teaching the employees, leaders and teams within them to understand the value of building a culture that’s based on trust, infused with a purpose larger than the bottom line.

The workshop not only focuses on the WHY of building such a culture, but it is filled with practical steps on WHAT needs to be done and HOW to implement lasting change.

Why Heart Matters

Some might mistake focusing on the heart as “soft” or impractical, when compared to skills and tactics. However, the results are clear: when organizations ignore “heart” as a focus, they continue to struggle with dissatisfied employees, frustrated leaders, chaotic working environments and under-performing teams.

Nearly every tactical problem can ultimately be traced back to weak character. Teams fail when they are led by people driven by fear, pride, moral bankruptcy, or misplaced business or life priorities.

The heart of a leader must be transformed before any other lasting personal and organizational change can take place.
