When people feel free to speak with authenticity, from their heart—at work—without fear, their workplace becomes a place inspired by shared purpose. Workplace productivity is marked by extraordinary quality. In Heart at Work, explore real stories that will inspire you to want to make speaking from the heart the norm, not the exception.
Several practitioner/authors describe and tell actual stories about their own work. A toy manufacturer describes the connection to their customer, children, through play. A soldier describes how his struggle to survive PTSD, enables his ability to support other soldiers. An artistic director and choreographer reveals the transformation that occurs when dancers share in the creative process. College presidents describe their increased ability to open their hearts and then increased staff and student success as people become more engaged. A Medical doctor describe how their own personal transformation impacted his medical practice. Authors describe the ways their inner work and then meaningful sharing with colleagues, results in innovation, creativity and positive action, including better service to clients.

Hafiz long ago wrote: ‘Love is the great work, though every heart is first an apprentice . . .’.
