Inner development accelerates outer impact

The skills and capabilities needed to create sustainable impact

By developing our capacity for complexity awareness, perspective taking, compassion and co-creation, we can start operating at a new level and meet the challenges of the 21st century.​​

 

Develop your personal and collective capacity for working with wicked problems

When working with any complex strategic issues, may it be the 17 Sustainability Development Goals or leading a transformation in your organisation, it helps to have clear visions and plans. But experience shows that plans are not enough. To create real change and impact, we also need to develop inner aspects of our organisation such as learning mindset, perspective taking and collaboration.​

Inner Development Goals – a framework for growing yourself and your organisation

The Inner Development Goals (IDG) is a research-based framework presenting 5 categories with 23 skills and capabilities, critical to succeed with sustainable transformations. The 5 categories create a comprehensive framework that shows how we need to develop both cognitive, emotional and relational skills to succeed in working with complex challenges.

Welcome the 2022 Global Inner Development Goals summit – co-hosted by Mannaz

Move what matters: Mannaz is your partner in creating sustainable impact

In Mannaz we help organisations assess what skills and capabilities they need to develop to create greater impact and sustainable growth. ​

As a collaborating partner of the IDG Alliance, Mannaz leverages on the expertise and experience of many practitioners, academics and thought leaders from around the world. Our own expertise lies in the intersection between theory and the practical reality of organisations. We use our extensive experience from organisational and leadership development to help our client integrate IDG principles, skills and capabilities in real life.
