Kirsty Henderson shares some of her insights with Author Tobias Harwood for The Great Traits Project. Listen to the podcast here.

About the Project:

The Great Traits Project investigates the behaviour and beliefs behind phenomenal feats.

We introduce you to individuals who have achieved remarkable feats and illustrate the character traits that drive them. We reveal their attitude to life. We highlight what makes them tick. We expose the traits behind their greatness.

Over recent years the Great Traits Project has interviewed inspirational individuals from the world of business, sport, the military, charity, the arts, science, technology and extreme physical adventurers. These are remarkable people with an array of wonderful stories to tell. They provide insights that can inspire and influence us all.

Throughout the Great Traits Project you will meet these amazing individuals– some are household names, others are unsung heroes, but all have an attitude to life we can learn from. They provide riveting insights into true life stories. They shed new light on the way we think and act.

‘Be not afraid of greatness,’ Shakespeare wrote in Twelfth Night. ‘Some are born great, some achieve greatness and others have greatness thrust upon them.’ Throughout the Great Traits Project you will discover individuals who fall into all three categories.
