DMM Core Value Propositions:
First, every human has a mind, and every mind has a story to tell.
Each of us, however humble our personal or professional background, has much to share with people close and afar. And not only today but with our descendants to come.
We are born, we live, we die. Most of us lead ordinary lives. Not all of us become statesmen, writers, artists, Business or Sports personalities. But each of us is unique, each has a story of a life lived, and each is a library of unique experiences, ideas and thoughts and feelings. Why should our Life’s Story be wiped out when we are no more? No, we should all have a platform for leaving behind a legacy of our dreams, relationships, achievements, mistakes made and lessons learnt, and opinions on issues of our day.
DMM provides a compact, one-stop platform for preserving your Life’s Journey. First, to enable you to record FREE all facets of your NowLife. That is, all you wish to share of your day-to-day thoughts and activities with the world outside your cocoon. Gradually, your blogs will evolve into your Autobiography in the Library of Minds.
Second, in a globalising world, living and working with people from diverse cultural backgrounds is inescapable.
Cultural Intelligence (CQ) skills enable us to do this.
It is self-evident that we now live in Global Village. In the age of Information and Travel, diverse societies with different values and practices are being drawn together in multicultural settings. These range from the workplace to personal relationships. Inevitably, cultural diversity gives rise to misunderstandings and even conflicts. Therefore, to ensure harmony and cooperation, it is essential that we understand why and how an Earthian from another culture thinks or acts. The discipline of Cultural Intelligence (CQ) teaches skills which we must learn to promote a united humanity for dealing with the challenges facing it – from nuclear wars to global warming. Such issues are now an integral part of every human’s Life’s journey. DMM provides a platform for learning Cultural Intelligence skills.
