Transforming Communities One Rockstar At A Time

In synergy, through a holistic and restorative approach, in 2023 Project NOVI has been incubated so that in 2024 a series of innovative digital assessment tools can be piloted to identify and empower our participants’ strengths, capacity and pathways to realising their goals and greater autonomy.

Focus has been on introductory communications and initial assessment including onboarding into a custom operating system, consent, Adaptive Multifaceted Personality Screener (AMPS), Needs Motivation Assessment (NM), Purpose and Potential Explorer (PPE), One Page Participant Report (OPR), Conversation for Understanding and Next Steps planning.

These steps and tools have been developed to uncover nuanced personality traits, individual capacities, and priority areas for development.

When combined with visioning around their Nova Diem (new day) journey through provocations in the Synergistic Assessment (capacity, willingness and desires), it is expected that an impactful empowerment and self-determination experience will be ignited.

Foundation Nova Diem exists to unlock potential and break down barriers to a more equitable and inclusive world. A non-profit organisation, we’re driven by a deep sense of compassion and commitment to social justice, focused on identifying and empowering capacity for a brighter future.

Currently, in start-up, we’re building Project NOVI – an evidence-based tech-enabled, innovative online experience to identify and unlock unrealised potential in the face of disadvantage, empowering pathways towards autonomy.
