Life is a many-splendored thing…


Research indicates that there is a strong business case for encouraging employees to “bring their whole selves to work”, because of a strong co-relationship between the psychological safety that this creates and employee engagement.

As a leader, how do you define your own success? Have you taken the time to enjoy the richness that life has to offer and encouraged your staff to do the same? You may be surprised at how this approach could deliver higher engagement, productivity and better business results. Join us for a stimulating conversation about Holistic Leadership, presented by Dr Sandhya Karpe.
