The Hearth is for you if you're a business leader with a team. Here we have conversations about how to keep growing when you feel you've reached your capacity. When what you're doing is working, but you're starting to see the cracks. When there's a gap between where you're at now and where you want to be. Here we find ways to transition through struggle of survival toward creating a thriving business that supports you and your team as whole humans.Your host is me, Candice Elliott. I am a strategist & mentor who specializes in working with business owners who are going through periods of growth, especially when you add more people to your team. The practices and systems that worked when your team was smaller just don’t seem to fit anymore. When you’re caught in stress and reaction it's tough to reimagine the way that you created your world of work, both your own personal one, and the one you created for others. I help people align their values and business practices to build practical, sustainable, thriving work ecosystems. And no, this isn’t just some work utopia talk. To do this I bring forward my decade-long professional background in human resources and organizational development working with growing businesses across many sectors, and my decades-long search for meaning and wholeness which includes researching the history of work and how it came to be what it is today, practicing a trauma-informed approach to business, and integrating work, life and spirituality into a meaningful whole. Let's take this journey together.Learn more about Candice and her work here: www.fortressandflourish.com
