Return On Humanity

Leadership lessons from the globe’s four corners:

Can a company truly become a positive force while remaining at the forefront of competition?

Here you’ll learn unexpected benefits of being more human in life, leadership and business. The learnings come from stories in fields as diverse as human rights in Syria, the UK prison system, Brazilian psychiatric care, architecture and the corporate world.


About Us

In the modern fast-changing business world your people often provide your primary competitive difference. No wonder companies face enormous pressure to recruit, train and motivate the best people. 

Today’s executives want roles where they can learn, connect and grow; where they can encounter fresh perspectives and new ideas. They want to work for a business with meaningful purpose.

At TIE we help companies create ‘people-centred leaders’. We introduce your talented employees to different cultures and challenges, helping them better understand their own unique qualities and potential. We jolt people out of their comfort zones, exposing them to real global issues and tough social problems.

Our leadership training programmes are designed to reframe success. By nurturing leaders who are more responsible and resilient, more creative, and confident, you can build a more valuable business – one that thrives in today’s volatile, interdependent environment. We call this Return on Humanity.
