The Program Director and Founder of MindSage, Todd Macadangdang has worked in the EdTech industry for 20 years. Having spent time working in corporate America, small businesses and startups, Todd is very aware of the lack of soft skills possessed by graduates as well as many already in today's workforce.
Todd initially developed MindSage as a soft skills program for his college interns. However, since many negative habits, mindsets and traits are developed well before reaching college (while still in middle school), Todd began to break down his course into age appropriate lessons for students in grades 4-12.
The hope was, and still is, to help students prevent or unlearn negative traits and habits, and build, as early as possible, the powerful skills, mindsets and habits student will need to succeed in the workplace and life.
