THINKING BETTER. CHANGING LIVES.
Contrary to common opinion, the adult brain is not hard-wired or unchangeable. Your brain is able to grow and transform itself for your entire lifetime.
Who are we?
Altitude Minds is a performance solutions consultancy that applies neurobehaviour change principles to help individuals, workplaces and communities expand their thinking and transform their lives.
What do we do?
We are a team of behavioural scientists who condense the latest research in neuroplasticity, behavioural science, psychology, cognitive neuroscience and foresight thinking to deliver an integrated neurobehaviour model to expand your thinking, and in turn, transform your life.
Medicine for the
Understand how your thinking and behaviour shapes your experience of your work. Discover how to rewire your brain to reignite your passion for work and positively change your life.
Rewire your thinking for project success
Apply our integrated neurobehaviour model to master strategies that empower you to think innovatively, solve challenging problems, enhance your creativity, and improve your productivity.
For forward-thinking leaders
Apply our neurobehaviour model on an advanced level to learn how to thrive as a truly transformative leader, in the context of both the modern day workplace, and within your own life.
Join For Change
All of the work undertaken at Altitude Minds is in partnership with our sister organisation, Join For Change, a global not-for-profit organisation fighting against human trafficking, modern day slavery and child exploitation.
Applying our integrated behavioural change model, we run specialised leadership programs for survivors of human trafficking, sexual exploitation and slavery. The money raised through the Altitude Minds workshops funds the projects undertaken by Join For Change.
What happens when you rewire your brain?
Open your mind to opportunities
It pays to be curious. By questioning things you used to simply accept, you will force your mind to think and rewire the old links in novel ways. Your brain’s neurochemistry will change and your mind will, quite literally, expand by growing new neurons. Ask yourself, what is the one thing you can change right now to create the life of your dreams?
Increase your Intelligence
When you learn something new, you alter your brain chemistry. The changes in your brain help you improve your intelligence by making new links in the brain which then create new ways of thinking. Keep an open mind and pick up a book. Read one chapter and you will have already altered your brain for the better.
Find long term ‘true’ happiness
The benefit of neuroplasticity is that, no matter how difficult your life has been up until this moment, or how stressful your job has been, you are still able to reshape your thought patterns and behaviours in order to change your outlook for the better. You are the designer of your mind and the driver of your actions, not the other way round.
“We cannot solve our problems with the same
thinking we used when we created them.”
- Albert Einstein
What People say about Us
“Understanding our thinking is essential to move towards success or through challenges. Ginny has an amazingly gentle and simultaneously direct way of coaching/consulting. I highly recommend Ginny to anyone who is wanting to make change happen and to move towards greater success, be it for yourself or your business. Shifting our minds and thinking can be the foundation to our success or that of our team...it really is our mind or our business culture/strategy that needs to be addressed to understand what holds us back from that next step towards success and sustainability.
Ginny thank you for being a great catalyst of change on my journey as I start my business. My sessions with you were so valuable!”
Jeanne van der Merwe
“I found the Workplace Neurobehaviour workshop to be really informative, and it built on my knowledge in this area. Ginny was a vibrant and engaging trainer and was very generous with her knowledge. It was a pleasure to learn from the wealth of experience that Ginny has in neuropsychology”
“Self-actualisation is central to being human, however not all of us know how to attain it, so it is not surprising that so many people are interested in what Dr Monteiro has to say. Dr Monteiro is a very engaging speaker who imparts invaluable knowledge from all her years of researching behavioural science. One leaves Dr Monteiro’s talk feeling better equipped to live the life you want!”
“I found it interesting getting an understanding of behaviour through the neuroscience lens, and how that can impact in a workplace setting. It could definitely be a useful way to influence and encourage new ways of thinking in a team and organisational settings.”
