Our purpose is to make work more meaningful
In Mindcap, we know that adding meaning and purpose to your work life increases your motivation, engagement and performance. We take our own medicine: we are organized by talents and strengths, self-leadership is key, we have fluid work structures where team performance is crucial, and we have an agile and ongoing people development strategy.
In 2018 one of our founders Natacha were on maternity leave spending time with her baby girl Saga. Natacha and Saga was enjoying their time together as well as the warmer breeze the spring sometimes can give you in the Nordics. As a “professional” maternity mom she spent time with friends drinking coffee and sharing the latest news from their lives. During these social hours too many friends and acquaintances told Natacha that they were on sick leave due to stress. Most were off work for a few weeks. Two close friends were home for more than 7 months. All of them started to see a psychologist.
Having a natural interest in people development combined with her own experience with psychologists, she started to look into how much “chemistry” with your psychologist affects the success rate of quick recovery. This quest turned into many interviews with psychologists, people who suffered or had suffered from stress and company leaders and HR professionals that had experienced people leaving because of burnout.
There was a lot of repetition in the answers she received and the answers changed her focus.
Psychologists said: “We spend just as much time talking with our clients about how to deal with their colleagues and leaders as we do on getting them back in shape”
Leaders and HR said: “We didn’t see it coming. It is difficult to spot the signs and I believe a lot has to do with their private lives”
People said: “I saw the signs to late and it was difficult for me to take action and speak up about the things that caused my stress symptoms”
From focusing on RECOVERY, Natacha started to look into PREVENTION.
She involved her husband, Mikkel Gade, who is a tech-nerd and entrepreneur, and they were led into a world of annual well-being surveys, pulse questions and a time consuming follow-up exercise that often fell short in meeting the expectations of creating real change! They dived deep into science of questions-fatigue, meaningfulness, motivation, performance and brain research. TWO questions lighted up
WHY is wellbeing not the basis of people development when we know that a HAPPY brain is more innovative and productive.
WHY do we not have a more personal approach to wellbeing and development when we know that personal MEANING boost motivation.
MINDCAP was now under the making … and is now an AI powered wellbeing & performance platform empowering meaningful everyday actions.
