"The world is experiencing a Crisis of Meaning."

"Meaning is emerging as the topic in personal, organizational, and societal transformation."

"We are witnessing the emergence of the Meaning Movement worldwide."

--Elaine Dundon & Alex Pattakos


Many people struggle with finding deeper meaning in their lives and work. We've identified a practical mindset and program called MEANINGology® to help them clarify what is truly meaningful so they can live and work with less stress, more energy, and more success.

Specifically, our mission is to demystify the subject of Meaning, increase engagement & resilience, promote well-being & health, and advance performance & innovation at the individual and collective levels. 

As a pioneer and leader of the Meaning Movement, the Global Meaning Institute provides strategic advising, public speaking, lecturing, and seminars on the concepts and practices of  MEANINGology® and MEANING First Innovation®.
