His speaking engagements aren't mere lectures; they're transformative experiences that inspire individuals to challenge their preconceived notions about leadership and empower them to lead with both head and heart.

You are in Good Care

The tools and resources that Glenn provided gave us a roadmap on how to enhance the culture in our organization and life in general by becoming more comfortable with being a little uncomfortable in how we express who we are and how we navigate life and work. 

I am inspired by the work you are doing and would recommend “Heart Work” to anyone looking to lead from the inside out and from a place of love! Much love Glenn! 

Dell McKinney Vice President Retail, Goodwill of North Georgia

The power of human emotion is incredible and as a leader looking to enhance the experiences, exposures, and connections other's have, it was wonderful to have Glenn embrace our vision and give us a fresh perspective on how to lead in 2022 and beyond.

If you're looking to engage your teams with a different type of conversation, I encourage you to explore what Glenn Thomas can offer you and your team. My team had great feedback and would like to see him back again! Doing what we've always done, may not get us the results we currently need. It's certainly time we do things differently so thank you Glenn for broadening our perspectives, in and out of the workplace.

Dr. Angela Alston Chief Diversity Officer, Lead Faculty Women's Health NP Program, The Ohio State University College of Nursing

Heart Work positions those of us who have agency to design a safe environment where teams can be introspective, vulnerable, and open about matters of life, love, and leadership. This significant leadership framework illuminates the beautiful gifts in the people we lead/serve.

And I can think of nothing more valuable than to build successful teams and businesses by leading with love. Heart Work should be the centerpiece of all business cultures that seek to amplify gratitude, purpose, and love.
