Happiness, contentment & gratitude

Three words I’m often asked about during our workshops are happiness, contentment and gratitude, understandably these words create a lot of discussion amongst the group.

Mindfully being creative and innovative, disrupting ourselves from our own repeated past thinking

Innovation and creativity are probably the two words that coincide with the most discussed word organisationally around the world today, disruption.
