Overwhelm, burnout, compassion fatigue, horizontal and hierarchical bullying, and toxic behaviours are just some of the symptoms that lead to high costs in sick days, sick leave, conflict, medication errors and the health, and sometimes lives, of your patients.

Our belief is that Relationship-Centred Care© is the foundation of Patient-Centred Care and the key to creating a culture of leadership from every chair – relationships from the front line up to the CEO.


ALIVE in Healthcare aims to influence thousands of Healthcare Professionals globally to be proud of their profession and contribution to Relationship-Centred Care©.   

Relationship-Centred Care©

Our belief is that healthcare functions at its peak when “Leading from Humanity” is from a Relationship-Centred Care© approach: caring about every relationship involved in the healthcare system, beginning with self.


We work together with you to nurture a positive culture in the workplace based on respect, responsibility and care. Our programs are designed to improve the quality of teamwork and the sense of belonging, ultimately reducing conflicts and organizational costs,  increasing efficiency and allowing new standards of excellence.
