FAQ.

What is a Paradigm?

A paradigm is a broadly held set of beliefs that greatly impacts the way we see and experience the world around us. Often the greatest barriers to progress and innovation are simply the inability or refusal to see beyond the current paradigm. When an ineffective model of reality dominates common thinking on a subject, a paradigm shift is usually the only way forward.
