Their approach, drawing on principles that catalyze and sustain hope within individuals and organizations, unleashes positive aspects of the human spirit at work.
Bringing to life the five principles of hope through storytelling and vivid examples, Harry and Barbara invite their audiences to reflect on what they can do to make their workplace a more energetic and hopeful environment.
