our core values

Group 14 (1).png


is what we seek and promote. We believe in the power of multiple intellects (intellectual, emotional, spiritual, transcendental), modern science, and a combination of modern and ancient philosophy.


we believe in the power of AND and CAN. We can be Vibrant AND wise, scientific AND spiritual, modern AND ancient, strong AND forgiving. We can do both - have a profit AND contribute to society. We must dedicate ourselves to find ways to integrate, not to divide and trade-off.


is a lifelong quest defining vitality. You are mentally young as long as you keep learning. Once you stopped learning, the impacts on your mental as well as physical wellbeing would be profound.


is what the modern world needs. Machines can overtake a large part of specific, technical tasks, allowing humans to focus on areas with more added value. People need coherent and trustworthy leadership not only in business but also in their communities.


is what we support across generations.The majority of leaders incline towards mentoring and coaching, as it is often their calling, an integral part of their identity and purpose. It definitely is a part of ours.

we believe there is a growing demand for these three elements:

  1. For paradigm shifts among midlifers, longing for a more fulfilling second halftime of their lives;

  2. For a wisdom jump among younger leaders, when seventy-five per cent of young leaders long for more experienced mentors, willing to share their modern skillsets with them; 

  3. For cross-generational skill and vision enrichment. Many midlife leaders long for a higher purpose and greater contribution to the world, often encompassing sharing wisdom with younger leaders.

Inspired by, inter alia, Chip Conley and his Wisdom at Work, the EuroAcademy approach to Halftime transformation, the Jon Butcher Lifebook, Alain de Botton and other stoic philosophies, and Marshall Goldsmith’s coaching, we incorporate the following elements:

  • Holistic development of leaders benefiting from inspiring impulses of the physical, emotional, intellectual, and philosophical nature. There are positive synergies in constantly catering to those four planes of energies, and catering to multiple life categories for all the leaders.

  • For a transformation to be successful, dedication is crucial – together with a combination of guided discovery, collective support, and individual coaching. The wholehearted commitment starts with deep introspection and (re)discovery of individual purpose and calling, reaching the realms of spirituality. Stepping into a liminal place helps – an in-between place, where we have abandoned the old but have not yet fully accepted the new.

  • Development and transformations are neither sprints nor marathons, but fartleks. We combine one-off academies with midterm individual mentoring/coaching with long term collective support formats to make it happen. We provide support to individual processes: Get clear, Get vibrant, Get free and Get going.

  • Leadership growth starts with individual personal development, new beliefs and attitudes. It entails both learning and unlearning, both changing and letting go, supported by new skills (e.g., digital).

  • Obstacles are an inevitable part of life, as are many hiccups and failures on our individual paths to Life Mastery. Expecting them and consciously keeping the focus on higher motivation than immediate external gratifications keeps us balanced, happier and more productive.

  • We are all part of one humanity, though very different in our talents/beliefs/desires. One formula can, therefore, never work. So, we believe in mixing different sources and resources in a unique blend to support individual developments and transformations.

  • There are significant synergies between giving and getting, between vitality and wisdom. Therefore, mentoring and being mentored are very often integral parts of both the midlife transformation as well as the development of young leaders.

leadership development

MMM offers multiple transformational learning formats geared toward those three pillars:

  • Midlife Dynamics Academy (MDA): Modern Midlife gain guidance and support through midlife transformation towards a new purpose. MD formats combine guided individual and group sessions and provide access to internal and external resources for learning and inspiration, leveraging connections to global institutions (such as Modern Midlife Academy of Chip Conley or EuroAcademy) and local institutions (such as Digiskills).

  • Midlife Dynamics Coaching (MDC) & Midlife Dynamics Mastermind (MDM): Development formats to support the midlife transformation of leaders, ideally taken as a follow-up to MDA, whose formats are also available independently.

  • Leadership Dynamics Academy (LDA): Young and aspiring leaders (often mentees) go through guided value-based training to develop leadership skills, from personal to management. Also, they get access to courses and curated knowledge sources on the selected most relevant topics, like Strategy, Culture, Transformation, The Science of Life.​

  • Leadership Dynamics Coaching (LDC) & Leadership Dynamics Mastermind (LDM): Support ongoing Value-based Leadership development through mastermind groups with the optional group mentoring/coaching element.

  • Leadership Mentoring Marketplace (LMM): Experienced Leaders associate with MMM because it provides the most appealing pool of young and aspirational leaders interested in mentoring. Young and aspiring leaders benefit from the exclusive quality and diversity of the Modern Midlife Mentors (MMMS), highly experienced leaders with international experience.

  • Leadership Services Marketplace (LSM): To facilitate needs outside the core mentoring area, MMM provides matching services for mentors willing to offer other related services (such as consulting or industry-specific advice).

  • MMM Club (MC): An invitation-only club of MMMs who want to learn together, share and get inspired in the mastermind setting.
