Managerial Training in Mental Health

For leaders who want to grow teams who are more caring, fun filled and productive. For leaders who care.

 

We created this podcast as just like social impact expert Cindy Gallop, we believe: The single largest pool of untapped resource in this world is people’s willingness to help.

We believe that it’s every leader’s #1 priority to build a more caring and resilient team, who enjoys growing together. Results follow, along with more mentally healthy workplaces, as our caring CEOs attest to.

Join us to learn to take action through our discussions with many leading CEOs and senior leaders who care. People who value building a culture of care AND a culture of high performance. They’ve been there, done that, learnt a lot along the way and are continuing to do it. Join the conversation as they share what they’ve learnt with Graeme Cowan.
