Trans4mind's Vision, Mission and Values
Our Vision & Mission
We've been offering a wide range of personal development resources for many years here at Trans4mind, and over a million pages are read each month by interested people like yourself. Indeed, our vision is to make the human heart visible in community world-wide by harnessing the full potential of the Internet...
We feel the time is right to take this vision to the next level...
Over several years we've been working diligently behind the scenes to develop a new training system that provides a comprehensive training in personal development. This training addresses all the challenges each of us face in our lives - presented not as printed text but as multi-media presentations.
And we have added the crucial element of personal coaching, to help you take what you have discovered from each workshop and apply it in your own daily life, so that it becomes part of your lifestyle - the new transformed YOU! So that you become the change you want to see in the world, and you are empowered to take your new enlightened way of being into your local community and influence the world for the better.
In this way we will achieve our mission: To facilitate the person to move toward greater inner peace and fulfillment, by providing a transformational personal development resources. We provide this service with love, worldwide over the Internet and in community.
We are not linked with a religion or belief system, nor do we seek to control or manipulate people in any way. At all points, dogma is avoided - indeed, the motto of Trans4mind is: “Minds, like parachutes, function better when open.”
Having said that, we recognize some fundamental, universal truths, also widely recognized by the world's great religions and philosophers. In particular we feel that Love is our essential nature, and that by asking “What would love do?” and listening to our inner voice and feelings we can sense inner guidance. This loving guidance is the core of our spirituality. If our life is guided by Love, we can live and serve in simplicity...
The Power of Love
Trans4mind stands as a landmark in the world of personal development, because it is being devised, presented and maintained by the power of love. The purpose of this training is to bring joy and happiness to each individual and to develop and strengthen community worldwide.
Our primary values are:
- To focus on each person’s individual needs.
- To be open minded and holistic in our approach.
- To serve the public with integrity.
- To offer high quality products and services
- To market our training through love and service.
- To operate independently of any philosophy or religion.
- To provide this service in perpetuity for the uplifting of humanity.
We do our best to have these values guide our every action as we work to design, develop and deliver systems and services that bring personal development education and training to the public.
For example, we treat customer confidentiality extremely seriously. We would never dream of selling email addresses. We refuse to include tracking scripts and third-party automated advertising on the site... our services are our products, not selling your demographic information.
Our online training and coaching services obviously have to take place in utmost confidentiality and you can be sure that personal information is stored securely and only visible to yourself, to Trans4mind technical administration - and, if you so choose, you can provide access to a single selected Trans4mind Coach - and no one else.
In our marketing, we consider you, our potential customer, as if you were friends or family. We appreciate your presence and interest and market our products to you by serving you in a personal way and by offering to educate you about our services. We refrain from the kind of manipulative, over-hyped and time-limited arm twisting that so many other sites resort to.
Expressing love in business is achieved by being fully committed to identify your customers' every need and then designing your service to meet these multifarious needs, in a way that is simple and intuitive for your customer to use.
“Most people make the mistake of thinking design is what it looks like. People think it’s this veneer – that the designers are handed this box and told, ‘Make it look good!’ That’s not what we think design is. It’s not just what it looks like and feels like. Design is how it works.” ~ Steve Jobs
This is our design philosophy here at Trans4mind. If you find our online platform easy, simple and intuitive, it's because we focused on making it that way, during a 3 year design process that was not delegated, but which was the exclusive domain of our company's two founders, Peter Shepherd and Wallace Huey.
Inspired by the design philosophy of Steve Jobs, they worked tirelessly over this period, assisted at times by their business mentor, Dayna Caceres, their Chief Technical Officer, Aidan Doyle and their customers, to design hundreds of prototype webpages. They experimented with different options to understand the relationship between these webpages, their various links and the company's business model. These relationships were integrated over this period by Peter and Wallace to create a single cohesive online marketing website and online training platform that meets the customer's needs for personal development.
By these means Trans4mind intends to do for personal development what Apple did for tech.
The Trans4mind Principles
These 6 principles are used to manage Trans4mind:
- The Principle of the Integrity of the Whole
The integrity of the whole outweighs the integrity of any part of the company. This principle protects the company at all times. One person's interests are not senior to the financial well being of the company and the vision and mission of Trans4mind.
- The Principle of the Minimum
In all that we do - we do it with the minimum use of resources and complication. This principle ensures economy of effort and simplicity of approach, leading to the discovery of the most effective and user-friendly methods that everyone can understand.
- The Principle of Attention
When listening we do so without judgment and opinion and in so doing enter fully and completely into the other person's world - not necessarily with agreement but with acceptance. This principle ensures we understand each person's point of view and allows us to grow through such interaction. In particular, this principle applies to the most vital element of running a business: listening to the customer. Systems have to be in place to ensure we are always in touch with customer needs.
- The Principle of Giving One’s Word
Each person is asked to reflect quietly before giving their word to any action or task. This is necessary because each person will be expected to keep their word once it has been given, either verbally or in writing. We are all invited to hold one another to account for delivering what we have promised. This principle creates order and efficiency in all we do.
- The Principle of Response-Ability
That each person always focuses on our capacity to make things better, communicates directly when we perceive any situation that calls us to, and does not engage in fault finding or excuses in regard to ourselves or others. This principle ensures that each person takes personal responsibility for each situation they find themselves in and uses even challenging situations to advantage.
- The Principle of Believing in the Best in Everyone
This includes ourselves, our colleagues, and our customers. While we always seek to appraise every situation clearly and honestly, we can also choose to focus on and nurture the best in everyone. This principle ensures that the positive is emphasized and everyone's personal development needs are met.
All that we do and all that we engage in at Trans4mind is benchmarked against these six principles and adjusted where necessary as a result.
