the pursuit of excellence and enjoyment; whichever people choose to desire and emphasize - Albert Ellis.
Our purpose is empowering actualisation for a flourishing human culture.
We view actualisation as the ongoing process of becoming a fully functioning person - a journey throughout life, not an end goal or result.
Becoming fully functioning is as much about our need to reduce unnecessary human struggle (or dis-ease) as it is about unleashing our potential.
Carl Rogers defined useful characteristics around becoming fully functioning including being fully open to all life's experiences; being present in the moment; trusting ourselves to make the right decisions; thinking creatively and taking risks; and being satisfied with life whilst seeking new challenges and experiences.
We understand that actualisation is a very individual process, with outcomes that can vary significantly from person to person. It's why our process starts with the individual.
For example, for one person it might be finding joy in achieving mastery with a particular project, for another it might be mastering skills to apply in the workforce for improving the lives of others, for someone else it might be the sense of purpose attained from raising the next generation.
Human-centred Development (HcD)
Actualisation needs are met when we engage in self-development and personal growth through Human-centred Development (HcD).
HcD approaches acknowledge that actualisation is a personal and unique experience by putting the person at the heart of the process.
We believe the quality of our lives is directly influenced by how we shape our sense of reality. Overcoming struggles and unlocking potential often requires a fundamental refresh of our meaning making or upgrading our human operating system.
This is why we start Mind-First® - to provide the gateway to new mental, emotional and behavioural possibilities.
Amplifying human connection
We see this self-evolution as the basic foundation of creating a positive impact not just as an individual, but also as a member of a team, an organisation and the community.
Whilst we start with the individual, Mind-First®, we believe deep human connection comes about through the cultivation of inner values and consciousness and the genuine care for others that arises from the realisation of our fundamental inter-dependence.
By examining our mental constructs and developing more expansive perspectives, we become better able to understand others as well as the self, and in doing so cultivate strong inner values that drive empathy and collaboration.
By forging these deeper connections with each other we create the conditions that unleash collective potential, innovation and positive impact in the world.
This is why we created a digitally-enabled scalable Mind-First® system that removes the need for 'experts' and engages everyone in a collective process.
The opportunity presented by investing in Human-centred Development at scale goes beyond the ability for organisations to thrive in the global, digital age. It also has the potential to contribute to our evolution as a whole, as a legacy for future generations.
At MindNavigator we often say that the things that matter when it comes to actualisation and becoming fully functioning are the things that are ‘simple, but not easy’.
Human beings tend to create complexity and then struggle as a result of it. We see this in the way many organisations approach people development and the way individuals approach their own development.
We believe that the key to success is finding the simplicity on the other side of complexity and so we strive to ‘Keep it simple’ in all we do. (It's sometimes harder than it seems)!
By eliminating ‘noise’, we can continue to evolve in ways that enable us to be happy, connected and impactful.
We endeavour to apply this principle to how we design and develop our technology; how we support people with development; how we serve our customers; and how we engage in relationships.
