Building a Culture of integrity and authenticity

Ideal for a staff development or professional learning day, WholeHearted can tailor-make a series of experiential activities to get your staff talking to each other, reflecting on the ‘who’ in what they do and building up the skills of listening to one another and asking open and honest questions. Contact us to discuss your particular needs.

Leading Together: Building a Community of Leaders

Beginning with a residential program and then followed up by single day workshops and small group or one-to-one consultation, Leading Together helps to build a shared culture of leading with authenticity in your organisation. Contact us to discuss your particular needs.

The Journey Toward an Undivided Life – Retreat Program

The Journey Toward an Undivided Life is a stand-alone retreat program that offers an introduction to the principles and practices of Courage and Renewal work and the Circle of Trust® approach. It is ideal for a whole of staff retreat or for office/support staff. Retreat programs open to the public are offered at regular times but WholeHearted can also provide programs for a single workplace or across a network of centres as required.

Let Your Life Speak

Let Your Life Speak is a guided reading and discussion program offered as a six-session series offered on a weekly, or monthly, basis. It is an excellent introduction to the writing of Parker Palmer and a very accessible form of small group and individual formation or personal development. The program explores Palmer’s book, Let Your Life Speak, with chapter by chapter reflection using the principles and practices of Courage and Renewal work.
