Stephen Grinham

“The online SML program is a powerful and effective way for someone to take stock of what has been happening in their own life, do some ‘position fixing’, get to know themselves better and chart a purpose-driven course for the months and years ahead. Its visionary approach is firmly grounded in concreteness. Highly recommended when winds blow stronger.”
