Mission

Our mission is to nurture the unique nature of kids. We believe that recognizing accomplishments, virtues, and traits in an authentically meritorious manner, influences positive development. We nurture "Eureka" experiences—ones that cultivate the connections between hopes, dreams and the day to day world.

Our Certificates of Harmonious Development are visual affirmations that acknowledge inner strength and character and facilitate the learning process. The positive symbols and encomiums in each certificate resonate on many levels of human experience, and this in turn bolsters self awareness, confidence and happiness. This Harmonious Development advances the human condition.

CHART OF VIRTUES

The  Value of Harmonious Development

Our library organizes forty eight virtues along an positive executive function model. You can use the words to acknowledge growth and affirm change in your child, a co-worker or a student. Harmonious Development is the idea that effort produces change in individuals. Outcomes do matter, yet they are not the complete picture. Certificates of Harmonious Development recognize the internal outcome of effort. They signify that you recognize something of great value in the recipient. To students who struggle, or coworkers who strive or students who study hard, words matter. As people seek to master tasks at hand, there is something of great value - greater than accomplishing a goal. What matters is that others understand the nature of their effort, the unseen aspects of self actualization and efficacy. The purpose of Certificates of Harmonious Development are to acknowledge the recipients for this inner accomplishment.
