Fanning the flames of self-improvement

Posted on February 1st, by editor in Caring Times. No Comments

One hundred and fifty employees of Hallmark Healthcare from across the country recently gathered in Newport to walk over a bed of hot coals. The group came together for the “firewalk” ­ an element of leading life coach Andy Harrington¹s flagship programme “Fire your Desire”. Hallmark managing director Avnish Goyal is no stranger to walking over hot coals, having travelled to Hawaii to do a 40ft fire walk. “All too easily we can be governed by self-imposed limitations, but often there is no evidence for these limitations,” said Avnish. “It is something we use to restrict us from doing what we¹d really like to do. Hallmark Healthcare has been using this style of training for five years and employees have reported many benefits including huge improvements in self esteem and confidence.” Daniel Biggs, of the Regency care home in Cardiff, said he was a bit daunted by the idea of walking over hot coals. “Doing the fire walk has made me feel like I can do anything,” he reported.
