Karen Grey on The Inner Game

Aug 30, 2016

Gwen Garcelon hosts a new public affairs show at KDNK. It's called The Inner Game and it's all about a particular relationship – the one we have with ourselves. The Inner Game features conversations with community and business leaders about how they grow personally to make a bigger difference in the world through the strength and health of their relationships and organizations. Each of us has a purpose and The Inner Game is about the relationship we have with that purpose and how we contribute to a more beautiful world.
