Eat the Elephant, one bite at a time…

As some of you know, we ran our first Human Potential Forum in London last month. We had 20 business leaders drawn from 8 different organisations who feel the call to take a more ‘heartful’ approach to their organisations.  Most were businesses and one was an Arts’ College – this works just as well in […]

What Heart in Business means to Jean-Claude Pierre

One day, a Chinese sage was having a conversation with a king known for his barbarian behaviours. This king justified his behaviour saying that it was the way he was and it was actually why he was the king, someone who needs to show his authority by being tough. Then the sage asked him: if […]
