The Guardianship Project

Building Resilience and Preventing Mental Illness with Mindful Living

Poor Guardianship Risks Lives and Costs Money

A Lack of Guardianship leads to:

  • Mistakes being justified and explained away.
  • Poor awareness of what is going on.
  • Bullying and Emotional Abuse.
  • “It’s not my job” attitudes.
  • Decisions based on Self Preservation.
  • A Blame Culture which encourages dishonesty.
  • Abuse of guidelines simply because someone disagrees with them.
  • Accidents, equipment breakage, waste, and re-work.

“People lacking Guardianship don’t have yours or anyone else’s back.”


“The Guardianship Project” lays the Foundations for a new Culture. It:

  • Brings Guardianship into the Spotlight and gives a clear understanding of what care is and what it means to care.
  • Gives live examples of the consequences of both care and a lack of care.
  • Looks at the relationship between care and notions of “deservability”.
  • Explores the natural motivating forces for guardianship and what gets in the way.
  • Builds new pathways to learning to practice greater care and to being genuinely more caring.
  • Creates an attitude of leadership!

“If you stop for a moment and analyse any tragic situation, whether it be an accident or something inflicted by another person, immediately before hand there will have been a moment where someone had the opportunity to take corrective action but chose not to.”


Create a new Culture where Your People assume Guardianship
over their Workplace, each other and their Community.


“The Guardianship Project” Program

Introduction to the Seminar:

Modern Living in a vibrant economy brings Wealth and Opportunity. It also brings entitlement, indulgence,and selfishness. The very things that often create success, like selflessness, teamwork,and fear of failure, seem to disappear as this wealth leads to comfort seeking, egocentric behaviour,and“me” attitudes.

We learn from History that we do not really learn much from history. This is a repeated pattern throughout the history of humanity. Recent DNA testing on ancient human remains reveals that modern, lifestyle diseases like Cancer and Heart Disease, were prominent during the height of the prosperity of the Egyptian Empire.

The Aim of the Seminar:

To educate participants about what guardianship is, and how to become genuinely more caring. It takes away the stereotypes and looks at what is real. It brings the humanity back into day-to-day living, relationships, communication, and the functioning of a collective unit of people. It reveals the true nature of leadership.

Seminar Description:

The Seminar starts out exploring what things leave a person feeling good about themselves, and the things that lead to self-degrading attitudes, anxiety, and mental ill health. It explores the role of care and addresses real-life situations where care was dropped and the eventual outcome. It then looks at how situations were changed when care was taken. It also looks at how guardianship leads to greater care and potentially extraordinary outcomes.

The Seminar then explores the motivational factors behind Guardianship. What leads to great care, to a caring attitude? What reduces care and takes it away.Participants are given time to share and explore their own stories.

This program is a Journey into Guardianship. It looks at the motivating forces for care and what is required to tap into those sources and bring them to life. We look at real life events where care was missed and harsh outcomes that followed. We also look at events that turned out well because someone cared.

The program provides a graduated set of steps to developing one’s ability to care, to show up in the world and put self-interest aside to create a better life for all.
