October 2019 Meeting

Human Nature Development is the brain-child of husband and wife team, Liz and Mark Wootton. It’s a unique combination of their experiences, training, skills, and outlook on life.

There is one key ingredient, common to all businesses, regardless of size or industry: PEOPLE. The more effectively the people work, whether individually or together, the more success that business will have. We have drawn from our experience in leadership and business management, combined it with unique perspectives drawn from martial arts, sports, music and theatre, Alexander Technique, Myers Briggs and life coaching training. We recognize that whatever your job, you are a human being first and foremost, and our approach is to work WITH your human nature, not against it.
