“Gifts from the Mountain is a clear and concise DVD presentation that positions powerful principles to evoke individual reflection and group consideration. The Heart and Stroke Foundation used the DVD and supporting materials during professional development days for all staff. We experienced authentic conversation that engaged every person from entry level employees through senior leadership. The result is heightened awareness of how we are “being” together as we are “doing” our work and a renewed commitment to our culture and values. Thank you!”
Donna Hastings, CEO, Heart and Stroke Foundation of Alberta, NWT & Nunavut
