How can we help people to achieve a higher level of mental energy, stay fuelled and perform throughout their workday?

What the solution was

The Emyrs cycle of change (ECC)Is an information visualization and conceptual model meant to be read like a compass, a clock, and a map. It was devised to help teach designers how to identify the modes, dynamics, and mechanics of change. By learning how to better facilitate and manage change it helps designers navigate how to shape change, how to articulate it, react because of it, influence it and harness their capacity and value in transformational projects.

What the solution was

Switch Think Drinka beverage that helps your mind to work at its optimum.

Scientifically designed to help heighten your brain’s ability to think, process information and stay active by using well-balanced nutrients in the drink to help stimulate neurons in your brain for a naturally sustained performance.

What problem did it solve?

The problem is that many designers do not understand the dynamics and mechanics of change and are unable to link that to their recommendations and facilitate that journey along.

What problem did it solve?

The problem was that many people feared being seen as incompetent and desired to feel smarter, more alert and more mentally agile, so they can achieve a higher level of mental performance at work.

What was interesting about the problem

What was interesting about this problem situation is that this investigation shows what forces influence change, outlining the consciousness and movements of those changes, the modalities those changes go through and the types of change that will determine the magnitude of the type transformation that will occur when designing.

What was interesting about the problem

What was interesting about this problem situation was that if it was approached as if it is a problem of providing cognitive enhancement and aiding self-improvement, then the solution became an exercise in bio-hacking.

What did I change?

  • I adjusted how we explain how change occurs and how to pinpoint where you are on the transformation journey.
