New emerging technologies, such as Big Data , Artificial Intelligence , Robotics or Quantum Computing are redesigning the world as we know it, making less qualified and more repetitive jobs in decline.

These technological advances are already challenging even the most advanced human capacities, beginning to perform tasks that, until now, could only be carried out by people. This means that, in order to continue to develop in an integral and complete way, human beings need to increasingly empower all the cognitive capacities that make us truly human.

The MindKind It refers to this new evolution of humanity (mankind) towards new levels of mental, intellectual and social development that will allow us to unleash our full potential.

Vision

To develop successfully in today's volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous environments (VUCA) , modern organizations need people who have some non-technical skills or "soft skills" very specific and infrequent. This new set of competences are grouped under the term

Learning Agility

"is the ability to learn from experience and apply that learning to perform successfully in the face of new challenges and in situations not previously experienced."

Through statistical models, five main factors have been identified that characterize people who posses Learning Agility , as well as a series of competencies associated with these factors.

Self-awareness

Self-knowledge or awareness of one's own abilities, limitations and mental processes.

Mental Agility

Ability to apply new thinking schemes and create new concepts.

People Agility

Ease of interaction with people and understanding of their motivations and needs.

Change Agility

Predisposition to face the changes in an active way and anticipate new opportunities.

Results Agility

Ability to generate results in novel environments never before experienced.


Identifying, enhancing or developing in people these five factors, and their associated competencies, is a strategic objective for any organization that wants to remain at the forefront of a globalized world.

Mission

"Sometimes it is the people who no one imagines anything of who do the things that no one can imagine." Alan Turing

Everyone has the innate capacity to do great things, but we need challenges that allow us to discover them.

The constant changes that are currently occurring in companies, organizations and work teams are the environment where the greatest challenges are presented.

In The MindKind we know that training is the best way to allow people, and organizations, to successfully discover their hidden capacities necesary to face these challenges. For this reason, our mission is focused on:

Developing original training content and innovative techniques to unleash the full potential of people and improve their ability to adapt to new, changing and challenging environments


Methodology

"Knowledge is not what is remembered, but what we can not forget" Confucio

The statistical models used to identify the factors and competences associated with Learning Agility have an important limitation: they are only descriptive, and not explanatory.

Unlike those statistical models, our ETR model is an explanatory model . This makes it easier for us to understand the origin, relationships and dynamics that exist between the factors and competences associated with each factor, and to work with them in an integral way.

Having an explanatory model makes it possible to deploy a methodology of "Accompanied Reasoning" . This methodology helps the participant to build by himself, using his own examples , the structure on which the concepts to be developed are framed, allowing him to obtain a complete vision of all of them and the relationships that characterize them .

This approach significantly improves the long-term consolidation of concepts, the depth of learning and cognitive flexibility, making it possible to easily extrapolate what has been learned to new areas.

Team

"Birds of a feather flock together" Popular saying

Passion is what differentiates great professionals. The passion for his work, for things well done. The passion to transmit everything they learned on their way, trying to make it easier for others. Our team is like that: passionate. But not only great teams feed on passion.

Ours is made up of a select group of professionals with decades of experience in their respective fields of

specialization, something that, combined with their enthusiasm for training, makes them a perfect combination for the task we have set ourselves.

Trainers, consultants, psychologists and sociologists, researchers, technicians and administrators, all working together to make our courses and services something really different.
