Inspiring Ethical Leadership
The Transformative Leadership Program, a course created by the Dalai Lama Center for Ethics and Transformative Values at MIT, helps students develop skills for ethical leadership by tracking and reflecting on their personal values, emotions, and behaviors. The course curriculum is designed to motivate students to align their personal values and professional behaviors, but the analog process, especially outside of the classroom setting, proved to be a manual and cumbersome praxis for the students in the program. The MIT team approached Hopelab to translate the course concepts into a mobile application that could have broader scale and impact.
Track What Matters Most
Mitra helps foster a new generation of leaders who act with integrity and positively impact their workplaces, industries, and communities. Users identify core values, then analyze, measure, and use them as guides for action. A moment of daily reflection helps users identify emotional states that influence actions and how they facilitate or affect one’s ability to lead based on integrity, community, courage, or other values of the users choosing. They are encouraged to observe their values and emotions on a daily basis and evaluate and reflect on their actions. Through that detailed history, they can gain insight to better align values, emotions, and behavior.
