For individuals

Introducing the Mighty Heart in Business

The Mighty Heart in Business is a flagship programme for corporate changemakers hosted by Business Plan for Peace. Founded by three-time Nobel Peace Prize nominee and iconic global leader Scilla Elworthy, we promote the skills of inner transformation and conflict prevention.

In this 8-week online course, you will learn the same skills that we’ve taught to major global businesses such as H&M that encourage innovative investment in social change and help formulate actionable and sustainable plans for peace.

By joining the Mighty Heart in Business programme, you are connecting to a groundswell of people who are committed to creating a world without destructive conflict. We are now enrolling members for our October 2023 start date. Click the button below to learn more.



Your journey

10 modules over 10 weeks delivered online will offer you:

  • The skill of deep listening to transform the conflicts people are facing
  • Compassionate communication needed to prevent arguments escalating
  • A way to change your inner critic into a wise guide
  • The skill to use anger as a fuel for transformation
  • The sense of your own strong presence to call on in a crisis
  • A way to develop intuition as a wise guide in making decisions
  • Enlargement of your capacity to speak truth to power
  • The skill to take a stand on an issue you care about and be fully heard
  • The integrity to be in service to the world, like Nelson Mandela

All these skills require one thing…the expansion of the heart. Each module is backed by exercises and small group discussions, and participants are provided with a workbook that fully illustrates all the material with stories and space for personal reflection.

Change-makers and experts on heart intelligence from around the world provide you with the real possibility of transformation.

Testimonials from previous participants on the course


“One of the most powerful transformation and growth processes that I have experienced in community.
The energy field, wisdom and alignment of this program is amazing.”

– Aleka Vial, Journalist and Executive Director and Founder of Fundación Hypatia, Chile


“This course provides, without doubt, a wonderfully rich guided process that is deep, personal, insightful and nurturing. It takes us on a journey with a series of exceptional teachers and peacebuilders who lead us into an exploration that reveals huge possibilities for our personal discovery and development. It was so rich and I would take it again in a heartbeat.”

– Deborah Henderson, Founder/CEO of Centre for Inspired Leadership


“Words cannot express what my time in the Mighty Heart Course has meant to me. The combination of the facilitators, the speakers and the assignments were perfect. The participants connected in a way that surprised me given that the course was online. The sessions were intense and thought-provoking, but everyone was open and willing to share and listen without judgement. This made for a very enriching experience. The course has made me very aware of my place in the world, the role I play and how my words and actions can affect those around me. I can feel the change within me. I also am eternally grateful to have made a connection with some very special people. People that I hope I will remain in touch with for a very long time. I feel privileged to have experienced the Mighty Heart.”

– Priti Sesha, Finance & Operations Director, Oxford Research Group
