Become the Leader You feel called to be
About the Book
We are Olaf Lewitz and Christine Neidhardt. We are your hosts on this journey.
We uncover the strength of people to unleash their freedom of choice. We believe that increases well-being and the effectiveness of organisations. It makes work more fun.
People need safe spaces to learn who they are and what they want so that they can make healthy and creative choices.
We want to share what we have learned and what we are learning about how to create and hold these spaces, and how to help people discover a clarity of identity and choice.
We want to grow a generation of leaders who share this with us, who change organisations in the world into safe spaces for people to flourish in freedom.
