Enabling Profound Change to Happen Now
We live in conflicted times. From the immediate global challenges the world is facing to our unresolved local problems, we are witnessing increasing division everywhere. The Mighty Heart online course offers skills that help each one of us to transform the sense of loss and overload that so many people are feeling today. It enables us to listen, to turn anger into a fuel for change, to face our own internal critic, to consult the wisdom of the heart – and thus break down silos in families, companies and communities.
Innovation and teamwork are too often held back by an inability to constructively manage disagreement. The Mighty Heart program shows you and your teams how to transform these frustrations into effective communication and real collaboration, leading to purpose-driven leadership. In this way we can transform frustration and tension into action for positive impact in the world.

When we own the loss, the grief, and the anger in our lives, we can discover and tap into a vast energy for change.
We can turn the power of our anger into an internal fuel that gives us the energy to put right cruelty and injustice.
Actually listening to someone you disagree with or dislike can reveal a goldmine of vital information that you can use to prevent and resolve conflict.
Train yourself to have the kind of innate presence that not only can de-fuse a tense situation, but can actually save lives.
Opening the heart makes compassion possible. It can change family life, transform negotiations and even stop a massacre.
Left-brain linear thinking is obsessed with measurement, results, and ‘winning’. The right brain supplies balance by seeing the whole picture and using compassion to find solutions that benefit all.
To enable those of us (90% of us) who are plagued by Imposter Syndrome, to transform this inner critic into an ally, and even a guide.
When faced by an apparently insoluble problem, develop the habit of using our intuition as a resource for action.
When there’s an issue you care about, learn to be able to stand up and deliver your message with courage, clarity, presence and purpose.
The mantra of last century was “what can I get?” but the new passion is “what can I give?”. Be part of the millions worldwide who have decided to get action and build a safer future.

The Mighty Heart in Action
Changing Corporate Culture
H&M are now integrating the values of the Mighty Heart across their business. Each of their stores aims to contribute positively to their local community, and with over 1,000 outlets in Europe the potential for connections and wider impact is enormous. They are living their values as an organisation, investing in the people who make them successful, and contributing to more cohesive communities. By adopting the lessons of the Mighty Heart, leaders and influencers within the organisation are affecting a widespread improvement in the culture.
H&M Next Chapter
Integrating new Values
We are pleased to have completed three further courses with H&M, deepening their understanding and impact of the Mighty Heart values. As a result, H&M are looking further into how they as individuals and as a company can impact the communities and world around them in a positive way.
The Might Heart in Chile
A New Constitution
Our first course in Spanish was a wonderful opportunity to support the representatives of Chile who had helped design a new constitution for their country, and the despair they felt as it was ultimately voted out. The impact the course had on their spirits and renewed courage was heart warming and inspiring.
11 New Facilitators
Expanding the Network
We are also celebrating eleven new facilitators who will be graduating from our MH Facilitator Course early next year. Their experience with corporate challenges, peace-building arenas and community settings means we are ready for the various opportunities opening up for the Mighty Heart in Action in 2023 and beyond.
The Mighty Heart was soon running a pilot course for 30 leaders and managers across H&M’s European region. Participants reported that they had never asked themselves many of the questions that were guiding the Mighty Heart journey. They had considered themselves to only be guided by their heads, rather than their hearts. The structured and guided course helped them open up, to create an atmosphere where everyone felt equal and able to explore and develop in their own way.
They developed the skills of deep listening, and an ability to treat colleagues as complete human beings. The value of the course was felt immediately and a second course was organised for a further 80 colleagues, followed by regular monthly updates to encourage furtherprogress and additional programs to reach leaders in other regions of the corporation.
