Heart-Led Leadership

Tommy shares stories and leadership lessons of heart-led leaders that inspire audiences to live and lead differently - business case studies that prove that living and leading from the heart will change your organization, your career and your life.

Return on Relationships

Economists talk about Return on Investments or ROI - Spaulding argues that profit and relationships are interdependent.
