That gifted people around the globe are able to meet fundamental needs via proactive engagement with their gifted peers.
To provide the infrastructure, support, education, guidance, opportunity, and professional development opportunities that allow gifted people to proactively meet their fundamental needs with and among their gifted peers.
Proactivity, collaboration, solidarity, kindness, promoting knowledge on giftedness, and promoting holistic thriving for gifted people.
Our reference for "fundamental needs" comes from bottom-up development models which view personal and community growth and development from the perspective of meeting basic human needs. Of particular interest to us are:
- Manfed Max-Neef's Human Needs and Human-scale Development Model
- Abraham Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs
- Kazimierz Dabrowski's Theory of Positive Disintegration
These models help us to tailor our assessment, coaching, courses and community offerings to meeting fundamental needs of our gifted peers, and thus to contributing to gifted thriving both individually and collectively.
