Why choose us?

04-07 whychooseus leftpane

Because our unique methodology – which we’ve pioneered and developed over 20 years – helps you to connect, expand and align your MULTIPLE INTELLIGENCES to accelerate your personal & interpersonal excellence.

NLP is typically viewed as a skill or technology that’s mostly in the head. However, we consider that if people could solve their problems through logic and reasoning only – they’d solve them fast and easily.

But we know it’s not always that simple; sometimes, “illogical” problems require us to mobilise different resources besides our logical mind.

04-08 whychooseus illust

We don’t have one but FOUR major forms of intelligence we can tap into to deal with issues like having no time left to do what we want, struggling to get the energy for effective performance, lacking clarity and focus for handling our priorities, etc.

Our methodology – developed over 20 years – helps you to connect, expand and align the different intelligences to accelerate your personal & interpersonal excellence and generate holistically powerful solutions.

What People Say About Us

Why we do what we do?

Since 1997, Mind Transformations has gone through several major regional and global financial and social crises and world-shocking disasters.

And we’re still standing.

So we realised that life is not about eating, making more money, buying more stuff… then rinse and repeat

Which led us to ask ourselves some life-changing questions: “Who are we?” "What's our purpose?" "Our perceived limits?"

These questions led to our big AHA! moment:

be life-supportive in our consumption, people engagement and the way in which we work.

Everything we went through resulted in us writing a book, Choices of Now, that answered our and many other people’s questions regarding why we’re going through such challenging times and which provides solutions and practical steps for creating a sustainable future for our children and our planet – individually and collectively.

Do good and do well

This is a concept we live and run our business by because today,
getting as much as possible for ourselves
and forgetting about everything and everyone else in the
process – is simply not acceptable anymore.

In our old paradigm, winning was everything.

Today, questioning how we’re going to win is a moral and global
responsibility, monumental to our future existence.

We simply cannot go on “business as usual” with our old ways of
achieving success given the current state of our world.

More and more organisations are promoting practices such as retreats and mind-body training programs, creating a space in the workplace for meditation, etc. Companies like Prentice Hall Publishing, Google, Nike, Proctor & Gamble not only witnessed an improvement in their employees’ health & temperament, but also work performance, job satisfaction, job engagement, affective organisational commitment, etc.– which contributed to raising bottom-line profits.

The ultimate intention of incorporating “do good do well” into organisational practices is not an entirely unselfish consideration: more and more companies find it powerful in attracting new and retaining customers, but also recruiting and retaining quality employees.

According to a Bentley University study featured on Forbes, 85% of millenials said they want to work for a socially responsible and ethical company. The Cone 2010 Study showed that 85% of consumers are likely to switch brands similar in price and quality, to one that supports a cause; 54% of this group are willing to pay more to buy green products.

So does promoting “do good do well” impact business profitability? Ask Body Shop, TOM Shoes, Whole Foods, Life is good Inc., Jelly (Web App), New Belgium Brewing, TerraCycle, and the list goes on.

Do your own research on these companies and you’ll find that doing good can lead to doing well; in fact, doing good is helping them to do well. As it is clearly shown here (more info in our book, Choices of Now), our ideal to be good and do good, need not be in conflict with our desire to do well in our workplace.
