PAXIS Institute

PAXIS Institute is doing stuff. Great stuff.

Thank you for attending the Second Annual International PAX Partner™ plus PAX Teacher Training for PAX Partners. Registered users on the website can go to the community section to view additional information, training materials, and new conversations.  

If there is a big problem in human behavior, we find simple solutions that can go big to have big results. Not many companies do what we do.

We use the best science to figure out why the big problem is happening. We don’t get caught up in small, pet theories.  We look for explanations that can be leveraged for big change, and that will not take a lot of coin to make the big change.

We also ask a profoundly simple question in developing solutions for big problems: “Which solutions will reduce multiple problems, and which solutions will provide the broadest impact across multiple problems?”  If a solution has a broad and not just a big impact, chances are that solution will be more sustainable.   Why? When more people benefit, more people have a stake in the big change.

Our team helps organizations from schools to businesses to whole communities, states, provinces, and even countries find, implement, promote, monitor or evaluate, and improve to solve the biggest problem we face—human behavior. We don’t design strategies done to people; we design strategies to be done with people at every level for lasting change.

Please learn more about our products, services, partners, and science.
