How can you turn things around? 

The quickest and most effective way to improve any human connection is to change how you talk and listen to that other person.

Simple – but not easy.

That's why we've developed this radical new approach – the 7 Habits of Creative Conversation.

Come and join us

We’re seeking pioneers to road-test our online course.

How do the 7 Habits help you build stronger human connections? How do they help make your life happier, more harmonious and more productive?

We need your feedback, so join the pilot and try the course at a pace that suits you. There's no cost and no catch. Just share your experience to help us make the app better.

Where do YOU need better connection?

Poor human connection is at the root of so many problems. So where does it hurt for you?

You're part of a dysfunctional organisation, where poor relationships and constant sniping are wearing you down


You want to help make a better society – but barriers and divisions seem to be everywhere



You're not connecting with your partner, a family member, a friend – and it's causing you pain
