The Workshop “The Box Experience: Building a Growth Mindset” was developed by Humanpersi based on the model originally developed by Persona Global, a North American company developing learning and assessment solutions with which Humanpersi established a partnership agreement. in 2017, valid for the markets of Portugal and other CPLP countries.

The reality of each of us is defined and limited by the way we see the world, which in turn depends on our conscious and unconscious mind: our box!

In the workshop ““The Box Experience: Building a Growth Mindset”, participants learn to visually represent their inner world (not visible to others) and their outer image (which others see). In a systematic way and facilitated by the Trainer.

In the Workshop there is a step-by-step awareness of the inner world and how this world facilitates or inhibits the overcoming of obstacles that allow us to achieve personal and professional goals – our desires and images of success. Then, the horizons of “our box” (our mind) are expanded, allowing us to think outside the box (or in a “better box”).

Through this 1 day workshop, participants develop strategies that allow them to make the unconscious conscious, the invisible visible and the impossible possible.

"Change is a door that can only be opened from within." How do we do it? Through ‘Box!’
