About Mind5

Who we are. What we do. Why we do it.


What is Mind5®?

Mind5® is a scale-up based in the Netherlands and operating across the globe. With our unique M.E.T.H.O.D.© we help people to understand and implement the principles of behavioral change. Within our online Optimal Performance Leader program, changemakers learn how to effectively achieve their goals using the principles of stress and energy management, teamwork, focus, flow, and long term performance. 

The Ideas Behind Mind5®

The Mind5® M.E.T.H.O.D.© was developed by Roelien Luijt, drawing on her experience of corporate life, elite sport, and the world of social-scientific research. 
 
During her corporate career, she noticed that people made terrible mistakes due to the stress which comes with change - 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.
 
This is why Mind5® combines mental and physical exercises.  This combination allows participants to experience how change and stress influence decision making, so that reflection and development can occur.
 
Once the connection between behavioral change, stress, and self-awareness had been made, the Mind5® M.E.T.H.O.D.© was perfected with the input of experts in the fields of: psychology, sociology, neuroscience, education, learning & development, elite sports and leadership studies.
