A great personal mentor for everyone. At a price you can afford. And the scale you need.

Sofia is a low cost, neuroscience-based cloud and mobile application that captures and organizes your experts’ knowledge at extraordinary speed. It uses their expertise to give everyone the real-time experience of a great mentor guiding them to think and act like the best people in the organization.

With just a few hours of work using Sofia, anyone, anywhere can perform like your best.

It’s like finding hidden gold in your organization – in just a few hours.

Discovering star performers' unconscious competence – the true secret sauce that makes them extraordinary – is hard. The Sofia Learning Platform enables you to discover what makes your star performers tick. The compelling purpose that drives extraordinary motivation. The specific, real-world insights and skills they have learned.

The actions they take to ensure top performance. All of this is gathered in just two to three hours. No other approach generates such incredibly valuable content in so little time…and makes it deployable typically within a mere 24 hours. Talk about competitive advantage!

The result is a book whose proven methodology has produced astonishing results for companies such as the world’s largest semiconductor company, where inventory management forecasting doubled its accuracy rate, and a leading fast food chain, where employee turnover dropped dramatically and employee retention remains well above industry average.

Drawing on recent breakthroughs in neuroscience, The Star Factor offers a fresh look at motivation, learning, and achievement. The result is a groundbreaking book for building a culture of greatness that starts with the knowledge, wisdom, and passion of the stars and radiates throughout an entire organization.

It’s like giving everyone a great personal mentor all the time…and having everyone really like the experience.

The best way to improve performance in an organization is to give everyone a great personal mentor. In real-time. Anywhere. No matter how many people need mentoring. Using just human mentors, this simply isn’t logistically possible – and do you really want your best people spending all of their time mentoring?

With Sofia’s self-directed learning, people feel like they have that mentor. They are guided to find their compelling purpose, become organized for success, learn expert tips and systematically apply them to the messy real-world — all while also participating in an online support community.

Sofia is not a simple learning management system (LMS) or database. It is a neuroscience-based platform that functions like a great, live mentor. Simply put, no other technology or program in the market has anything close to these capabilities.

It’s like seeing the real-world impact of your program in real-time.

Organizations have often had a difficult time determining the impact of their efforts to improve performance. It has always been hard to measure progress. Sofia gives real-time insights in the actual work completed. And, more importantly, the impact of that work on improved performance in the organization.

With easy to scan and understand dashboards and displays of real-world application of  expert knowledge, leadership teams have real-time transparency into the progress their organization is making. One executive VP says, “This is the first time I can see daily progress towards our goals.” No other system provides this level of qualitative, applied transparency.

The result is a book whose proven methodology has produced astonishing results for companies such as the world’s largest semiconductor company, where inventory management forecasting doubled its accuracy rate, and a leading fast food chain, where employee turnover dropped dramatically and employee retention remains well above industry average.

Drawing on recent breakthroughs in neuroscience, The Star Factor offers a fresh look at motivation, learning, and achievement. The result is a groundbreaking book for building a culture of greatness that starts with the knowledge, wisdom, and passion of the stars and radiates throughout an entire organization.

Elevate your team to the excellence of your best performers with one-on-one mentorship anytime, anywhere.

It’s like your best mentor is sitting next to one person at a time, even if you are touching 10,000 people simultaneously…and hardly costs anything per person.

There simply aren’t enough human mentors to do all of the mentoring needed in most organizations. And you don’t want them spending all of their time mentoring anyway. You want them being key contributors. Neuroscience-based cloud and mobile technology give you the ability to cost-effectively give this mentoring experience to 10 people who sit next to each other or 10,000 scattered around the world, all very efficiently. Without worrying about time zones. Without diminishing the quality of the mentoring. Without being limited by human capacity. Sofia delivers unmatched, high quality mentoring on a mass, inexpensive scale.

What makes Sofia so effective?

More than just a repository of information, Sofia is the only technology that uses neuroscience triggers and insights to efficiently capture expert wisdom, motivate employees to embrace change, and ensure integration of new ideas and skills into every employee’s life.

Put the science of self-discovery to work for you

Star performers, when interviewed by other humans, display a consistent response. By optimizing the process of interviewing start performers and observing neural response, we were able to design a set of online questions that stimulate specific neural responses and lead to the articulation of expert “secret sauce.” The four types of questions posed by Sofia to star performers or “authors,” and the neural response are:

Defining Purpose

Defining
Purpose

Articulating a higher purpose stimulates endorphins & dopamine.

Path to Mastery

Path to
Mastery

Understanding processes and motivating others stimulates oxytocin & serotonin.

Gathering insights by focusing on what’s important for others is natural on the job training.

The neuroscience of learning: Sofia stimulates neural responses to keep learners engaged.

One of the challenges for any change or learning program is to develop initial intense engagement from the learner, and to sustain that engagement in the face of real-world pressures. This has been particularly, challenging for online learning.

Yet we know that great mentors consistently create both this initial and sustained engagement. We studied how they did this, as well as the best practices for how they guided others, and designed Sofia to provide the same types of prompts and support. The optimized responses align directly with research on the neuroscience of learning, enabling Sofia to provide the experience of having a great mentor, but through scalable technology. The science of what makes our self-directed learning so effective is as shown here:
