Each of us is currently facing an existential crisis from the threat of the corona virus pandemic.

Value of the week.

Each week I will highlight a value that you can think about and practise. I hope this will help to keep your inner world safe during the Carona virus pandemic.

Courage: When thinking about courage be aware of your heart; the word’s origin comes from the Latin cor (heart). Courage, being brave, is a heart-led value that helps us to face life’s challenges, such as the current Carona virus pandemic. Too much courage leads to recklessness and too little fearfulness. Contemplating the middle way between these extremes enables us to act responsibly and without fear. During the week be aware of your level of courage; accept that you may be feeling anxious or indeed angry.  Come alongside your emotions and fill your sense of being with courage. 

Please let me know if having these thoughts help you.

A little about my vocation

I founded a charity called the International Values-based Education Trust (IVET) and its educational dimension Values-based Education (VbE), a movement for educational, corporate and social transformation.

To gain an insight into my thinking I suggest you have a look at my TEDx talk.

Presenting my TedX talk

I pioneered in the UK a successful transformational vision of how an organisation can be successful, humane and sustainable.

Workshop in Australia 2020.
“What qualities do I see in you?”

My work is demonstrating to schools, families businesses worldwide the rich benefits of Values-based Living. The result is the growth of what I describe as ethical intelligence, which creates a new powerful narrative so that society can flourish.

Our world desperately needs ethical leadership, which embraces integrity and honesty,

I recently visited Latvia and Romania which gave me the opportunity to work with young people who are passionate to see positive changes in their countries and the world.
