The Pacific Institute's mindsetting solutions empower you to:

Build Student Centered, High-Performing Cultures

Our BluePrint Cultural Assessment and Alignment process makes culture visible. By assessing the institution's current culture, the results provide actionable information that helps leadership move to future success and the desired vision culture. Our mindset education opens new thinking, increases engagement and creates a “want to” vs. a “have-to” culture.

Develop and Align Leadership

Creating and developing a healthy mindset is key to personal and team effectiveness. Our experiential and highly interactive leadership program unleashes new thinking on how a leader impacts the mindset of those they lead and the culture within the organization. It creates alignment within the team to establish organizational vision, values, goals and strategy.

Engage Employees - Improve Performance and Well-Being

Employee Engagement results in better organizational performance, increased creativity and innovation to handle today's fast-paced environment. When creating a more engaged and student-centered work force, it is necessary to understand the underlying root cause of disengagement. Our proven proprietary Mindset education gets at the heart of our thinking and behavior, that is our beliefs. As a result, you will see both immediate and sustained improvements in engagement, performance and personal well-being.

Equip Students with Mindsetting Tools to Persist and Thrive

In a world of accelerated change and increasing demands, the latest neuroscience research indicates that college students are increasingly struggling with the psychological frictions that occur throughout the student lifecycle. Left unattended, these frictions often lead to subpar performance and drop outs. Designed specifically for students, our curriculum equips students with the mindsetting tools, a growth mindset, and the essential elements of psychological well-being to thrive today and throughout their future careers and lives.

1 in 4 college students now report symptoms of anxiety, with 40% of college freshman indicating they are overwhelmed. Graduate students today are six times more likely to experience depression and anxiety than the general population.
