Our Changing World
Challenges of the 21st century
We are entering an age of artificial intelligence, biorobotics, nanotechnology, virtual reality, biotechnology, and of course, social media. Life as we know it is changing at an accelerating rate. Yet, our behavioural adaptions necessary to endure such changes are not caught up. Technology is evolving faster than we are.
Our Changing Brain
Neurogenesis and neuroplasticity is the basis of our work
We now definitively know that adult brains are not hard-wired or unchangeable. Brains of all ages and builds change over their lifetimes. The brain restores, reinforce and create new neural pathways necessary for change. In fact, this is happening in every moment and in every interaction with our world and with each other.
The Mind That Grows
Empathy precipitates success
Increasing our capacity for empathy drives neurogenesis in areas of the brain responsible for longer-term thinking, creativity and innovation, allowing us to utilise our brains more effectively to solve complex problems, generate novel ideas and think strategically. Empathy not only grows the brain, it grows the mind.
Connect To Evolve
Positive human interaction is fundamental for growth
When we interact positively with someone, we build neural pathways embedded in our memory, perception, pro-social behaviour and empathy. Interpersonal connection leads to a process called neural coupling, whereby our brains actually sync up with each other. The more frequently we sync up, the more we’re able to read the social and emotional cues of those around us.
The Unchanged Workplace
The need for transformation
Recent studies show that only 36% of workers are completely satisfied with their flexibility to balance work and non-work commitments. Furthermore, global employee engagement is dropping. Today, only 24% of global employees are ‘highly engaged’. The key to successful work in the modern era is a human-centered approach. Understanding the brain, human behaviour and human interaction is the key to modernising the workplace and driving success
The Altitude Minds Neurobehaviour Integrated Model
Our team has spent years connecting the dots between neuroscience, behavioural science and cognitive psychology to uncover the mechanisms that drive our thinking and actions. We have distilled the research into a model that successfully shifts knowledge into action with measurable behavioural outcomes.
The model combines five different disciplines:
