  • Basic Components of Training

    Institute for Mindset, Resilience & Innovation follows the three-step LIT framework "Learn, Internalize, Teach" that includes:


    a) Mastery of the basic components of the scientific theory that supports mindset shifts, transformation, self-regulation power and influence.

    b) Personal integration of the theory

    c) Practice in speaking about neuroscience to ignite growth mindset in audiences.


    The "learn component" involves attending three full-day intensives, three evening meetings, and further study of the resources suggested.


    The "internalize" component of the program involves:

    a) Creating action plans

    b) Engaging in reflection and meditation exercises throughout the months in between meetings

    c) Implementing insights into your day-to-day operations and interactions with staff and clients.

    d) Writing about your implementation and sharing with Stefanie and the group. Your action plans and implementation insights will be personally responded to by Stefanie via email throughout the program.


    The "teach" component involves:

    a) Sharing your insights and ideas at the meetings

    b) Presenting your project/idea to a group of invited guests at the Graduation Showcase.

  • Take your career to a new level with the iMRI training intensive.

  • Q: What’s different about the iMRI compared with other professional development?

    A: Neuroscience is the core curriculum, not an addition

    The biggest difference between the Institute for Mindset, Resilience & Innovation intensive and other staff training is that neuroscience and neurobiology information are the centerpiece of the curriculum, rather than a side-note.


    The reason for this is that my experience and research show that when people truly understand and internalize the mechanics, and ‘inner workings’ of the mind, mental states, emotions, they are better able to

    a) replicate it because these processes are now conscious, and

    b) explain it to others because they have the correct wording for it and a step-by-step explanation, rather than noticing things without knowing ‘why’.

  • Q: What kind of training or experience do I need to qualify for this training?

    A: You do not need any type of formal schooling; however, this training is not for everyone...

    I am looking for people who are curious, passionate, and wanting to help others expand into their highest potential.


    I'm also looking for people who are strong presenters or project planners. I'll be looking for graduates who can help me facilitate these workshops either within their own organization, or from requests received through my website. However, not all graduates will want to facilitate - I have some people who want to create small group-led therapy sessions, for example, using the framework.


    To be considered as a candidate for this program, please send me a quick email with Mindset Neuroscience Teacher in the subject line, so I can find out more about you and I'll send you more details!
