A letter from the founder
Great leadership is a beautiful and powerful thing. At The Hindle, we believe great leadership is needed to create a powerful corporate culture, capable of delivering great results. We call it a win-win-win. A win for the employees, customers and shareholders.
These are easy words to write, much more difficult to achieve. I will share ideas that will help you to become the leader, the catalyst, who can lead from the front and transform your organization. We promote the importance of leading with your whole self – with your analytical brain, your cultural brain, your heart and your soul, all together. You need to be whole!
We will show you the eight elements of the Wheel of Sustainability to shape a culture that supports and grows your employees, and you’ll grow to appreciate the connection between business culture and leadership and art. All this while you enjoy the pleasures of French culture and cuisine. You’ll also gain insights into the heart and soul which I argue is necessary to create the magic in your organization.
The intent of The Hindle – this unique, leadership development experience at a magnificent chateau in Provence, France – is that it changes you. When you leave us, you will have developed your leadership style, you will think differently, bursting with new ideas, you will have made friends for life and, we hope and expect that you will already be aware that it has been one of the best, and most beneficial, weeks of your life!
Bill Hindle Literally Wrote the Book on Transforming Business Culture.
The Great Resignation showed us all that times have changed, and so should company culture. Leading multiple generations of employees takes a leader who is more self-aware, more connected with others, and more creative than ever before.
In ‘Business Culture: Create your Masterpiece’ Bill Hindle tells the inside story of HindlePower, its successes, and the noticeable sense of fun, passion, and well-being in its employees.
Bill Hindle’s entrepreneurial spirit and desire to tap into the potential of employees from every generation – including millennials and gen Z – have been instrumental over the last 20 years. He explains in practical terms what he calls the “Wheel of Sustainability” – which is composed of eight interdependent elements that must all be in place for a cultural masterpiece to be created and maintained.

The French Connection
“One of the best weeks of my life” is how I felt when I participated in The Hindle’s first program.
