Your Guides to Organizational Health

The heart of an organization is its culture, composed of the hearts of the people, and primarily influenced by the hearts of the leaders. Therefore, to achieve organizational excellence we must strengthen the hearts of leadership and the workforce. This requires a radically different approach to education. One that is not targeted at the brain alone, but one that is primarily aimed at the heart. Anyone who is serious about pursuing excellence will love this unique approach in our book and in our training.
