A REVOLUTIONARY APPROACH TO DEVELOPING MORALLY STRONGER INDIVIDUALS AND NATIONS

The IIHFD is committed to raising the world’s awareness to the constraints on people in all nations due to the absence of the positive qualities of the Human Factor. This pioneering approach to education and personal advancement has the potential to change the course of the future for all countries, as new generations of moral and compassionate leaders are poised to create a brighter future.

Harmonious civil society begins with education that improves the human quality of people. Research shows that the development of non-cognitive skills such as character, personality, and conduct are as important as the development of cognitive skills like math, language and history. We place these non-cognitive skills under the positive Human Factor qualities.

The positive Human Factor qualities include resilience, commitment to principle-centered living, a pioneering spirit and productive entrepreneurial talents. These traits comprise the foundation of every accomplished society on Earth. Positive Human Factor qualities contribute to personal, professional and academic success. These attributes are not limited to students. This powerful foundation also applies to the private, public, and nonprofit sectors.
