CAVE Approach© for Human Development

CAVE Approach for Human Development

Why do intelligent people fail to succeed?
Why can't acquired knowledge and skills be applied efficiently?
Why do good intentions not lead to good results?
Why does getting what we want not necessarily make us happy?
Why are privileged people not necessarily happy and successful?

These questions and other similar ones reflect that efficiency is not a matter of knowledge, skills, intellectual capacity or intention. It is rather a matter of willingness and ability to use and apply all the above in a way that promotes our success and happiness through the appropriate attitudes, behaviors and actions.

The CAVE Approach© for Human Development, founded by Anastasia Moira, aims to help people acquire a widely applicable set of logical and moral standards against which they can assess their attitudes, behaviors and actions as appropriate or not for bringing results that promote their individual success and wellbeing, and common good. Based on the above criteria and on people's particular needs in regard to these criteria, the approach also provides personalized guidance and support for development.

What is it about?

The CAVE Approach© for Human Development refers to a pioneering methodology for the development of 14 Aristotelian virtues as a means to consistently promote success and happiness in our professional and personal life. Actually, it is the first comprehensive methodology for the systematic and structured development of Aristotelian virtues in the modern world. Its ultimate goal is to provide people with the fundamental capabilities for Human Development, and hence contribute to individual people's eudaimonia, world happiness and the sustainable development of humanity.

Specifically, the CAVE Approach© for HD aims to help people develop the following virtues:

  • Intellectual Virtues: Judgment, Prudence, Insightfulness
  • Moral Virtues: Calmness, Courage, Fairness, Friendliness, Honesty about oneself, Honor, Humor, Liberality, Magnanimity, Magnificence, Temperance.

How can leaders develop Aristotelian Virtues?

The methodology of the CAVE Approach© is comprised of 3 phases:

  1. Assessment: The CAVE© Questionnaire & Individual/ Group Reports
  2. Training: Educational Programs & Interactive Workshops
  3. Dialogues of Development (DD): One-to-one/Group Mentoring

These phases aim to serve the goals of the CAVE Approach© by:

  • Assessing people's needs of virtues' development
  • Providing a framework for virtues' development (cognitive understanding of the virtues and their practical value)
  • Supporting and enhancing people's effort for virtues' application in everyday life
  • Monitoring and evaluating the progress of virtues' development and expected results.
