About Mind5®
Who we are. What we do. Why we do it.

What is Mind5®?

Mind5® is an organisation based in the Netherlands and operating across the globe. We train individuals to work using our unique M.E.T.H.O.D.© with the aim of bringing greater emotional intelligence to the world. Within our programs, changemakers learn how to coach people on stress and energy management, team work, focus, and long term performance. We call them the Mind5® Optimal Performance Leaders. 

The Ideas Behind Mind5®

The Mind5® M.E.T.H.O.D.© was developed by Roelien Luijt, drawing on her experience of the corporate life, elite sport, and the world of research. 
 
During her corporate career, she noticed that people made terrible mistakes when under pressure - even the most experienced leaders. This is also the case in high level sports, something she recognised while participating in the Dutch national freestyle ski and ultimate frisbee teams.
 
That is why the Mind5® M.E.T.H.O.D.© uses sports to simulate stress so that reflection and development can occur.
 
Once the connection between sports and stress had been made, the Mind5® M.E.T.H.O.D.© was perfected with the input of some of the best psychologists and sociologists in The Netherlands, US military mindfulness trainers, and the Dutch army and police force.
