Leading with Heart

A fantastic four days spent with the British Heart Foundation (BHF) working alongside the talented Ash Thomas to co-facilitate their Leading With Heart programme.

First, we ran module two of the programme for a group of leaders in Manchester, including a live business challenge and coaching practice.  We were also joined by Aretai’s Judith Hardy who shared insight and learning from her experience as a leader.  Next stop was Northampton to meet a new cohort and start the journey of self-discovery with them.  Thanks to the inspiring Allison Swaine-Hughes, Retail Director at BHF, who joined us to speak about her experience inside and outside the world of retail.  Most of all thanks to our programme participants who were fully engaged in the programme throughout.  These people have busy lives leading teams across the UK with responsibility for BHF stores, staff, volunteers, drivers, fundraisers and more.  They are dedicated to the cause of funding research to keep hearts beating and blood flowing.

We’re delighted that delegates described the Programme as “Enlightening but reflective. Unlocking but self-challenging. Tiring yet refreshing” and “Inspiring and insightful. One of the best workshops I’ve attended.”

An amazing group and a privilege to work with them.
