About us…This is always a nice story to tell. The CAVE Approach© for Human Development was originally conceived by Anastasia Moira, an experienced R&D practitioner with studies in Psychology and senior consultant in the field of Human Resources Training & Development. Anastasia specializes in performance improvement and has an extensive experience of over 20 years in productivity and performance management projects throughout a wide spectrum of industries. However, Anastasia was not alone in this endeavor.
The company CAVE-Human Development & Wellness Consultants (www.cave.edu.gr) has been supporting her project from its very early steps by funding its development and its introduction to the global and local academic, professional and business community. Argyro Gkolfi, organizational psychologist and cognitive-behavioral psychotherapist, is Anastasia’s closest partner in the company, offering her professional contribution, wholehearted support, loyalty and passion for the CAVE Approach©.
Besides Anastasia and Argyro who represent the ‘functional core’ of the CAVE Approach©, a number of entrepreneurs, professionals, academic professors, academic institutions and clients have supported the approach’s development and establishment through their precious collaboration with us.
However, the most important contributors to the approach are the people, all those who embrace it, apply it and spread it around the globe, all those who share the same decision (not dream any more) as us; to Flourish as individuals, societies and humanity, to Change our lives and to Change the world.
