Our Theory of Change

High Resolves designs and delivers award-winning learning experiences…

  • which fuel a powerful personal transformation that inspires an individual to think, feel and act in the long-term collective interest, more and more often…

  • because they reframe their long-term memory through an immersive peak experience, which is reinforced through repeated practice and application in the real world over time…

  • which then drives the collective transformation of a community, as a tipping point of its members experience such personal transformations in their thoughts, feelings and actions…

  • which over time contributes to our collective transformation towards a more just, equitable and inclusive world thanks to a growing generation of global citizens who think, feel and act in the long-term collective interest of humanity, and leaders who inspire others to do the same.

Our definition of citizenship and leadership

At High Resolves, we define citizenship as acting in the long-term collective interest and leadership as inspiring others to do the same. The High Resolves citizenship framework, which forms the foundation of our curriculum and our new Citizenship Quotient project, lays out the core competencies of citizenship and the spheres of life where they must be practiced.

Our formula for mastery and impact

High Resolves learning experiences are transformational because they draw on proven design principles from learning science, behavioral economics, social psychology, and neuroscience.

Sustained personal transformations must involve peak experiences that shift a person’s thoughts and feelings about the world. These shifts must then be hardwired into long-term memory through repeated practice and application in the real world.
