Akron, OH: At its August meeting, the Distribution Committee of GAR Foundation awarded Heart to Heart Communications $20,000 to fund the development of a new comprehensive leadership program based on The Heart to Heart Way: Awareness, Appreciation, Authenticity and Application.

Heart to Heart Communications is a nonprofit organization serving Greater Akron through personalized consultation, facilitation and coaching to develop the inner life of individuals and organizations–inspiring them toward higher levels of leadership, communication, healthy relationships, mindfulness, and the ability to manage change.

The award from GAR will be used to develop a systemic, best practice program for leadership development within the Greater Akron community that focuses on an inside-out approach using the Heart to Heart Way—where leaders have the insights and practical skills to lead with awareness, appreciation, and authenticity and can practically apply this knowledge personally, as well as in their workplaces and communities.

“We are honored to receive this funding from GAR Foundation to launch us into the next phase of our leadership development model so that we can serve even more leaders in our community,” said Dr. Christine Williams, Heart to Heart’s Director of Consultative Services who will be the project lead for this program development.
