The Institute of Development was established in 2003. The reasoning behind its establishment is that success in every person’s life is based on ensuring the balance among personal, family and professional development.
We are passionately committed to help add value to individuals and organizations by developing knowledge, skills and attitudes that transform them in positive ways.
And in addition to extending people’s learning, we are committed to our own development and wellbeing so we can genuinely inspire others towards a flourishing life.
To improve wellbeing and achieve optimal human functioning through continuous personal and professional development.
To empower individuals, organizations, and communities to flourish through evidence-based methods, including the principles of Positive Psychology and character education.
Our theory, methods and practices used are based on the most modern evidence-based scientific approaches and more specifically on the principles of Humanistic and Positive Psychology, on the cooperative learning models, creative and critical thinking, multiple intelligences, and on character education based on values.
We are passionate, enthusiastic and proud of what we do and why we do it.
We believe that through our methods and practices we will be able to contribute to a greater cause and that gives us the strength and motivation to endure even in difficult situations that might put our faith in question.
Our main mission is to help people who want to improve their lives at professional or personal level and seek guidance or even support to do so. In order to be able to achieve that, it is of outmost importance that we firstly make sure that our practices come from a place of compassion and empathy.
