Human skills enable us to better understand ourselves, others and what we need to thrive in work and life. They include self awareness, communication, resilience, teamwork, creativity, ownership, mindfulness and more.
What do human skills matter?
Human skills, or soft skills, help us understand ourselves and others, they are essential in navigating through life's various ups and downs and helping us to achieve personal success. Like all skills though, it takes time and effort to master them.
Your technical capabilities will always be essential in building a career pathway, but it's your human skills that will make all the difference when it comes to standing out from the crowd. In fact, 86% of business leaders believe graduates are not fully prepared for the workforce and that ‘human skills’ are one of the main attributes they look for when recruiting!*
Today tertiary education is skewed towards acquiring technical knowledge rather than mastering the human skills needed to thrive in complex professional environments.
Employers are increasingly frustrated by the skills gap but human skills don't just help you succeed in work they also help you in your studies personal life and relationships. They can help you find your passion and channel your strengths.

Maxme was founded by Renata Sguario, a leading tech and digital transformation executive and qualified coach, with three decades industry experience. Renata is chair and non-executive director of Future First Technologies (ASX:FFT). Renata has held senior leadership roles at NAB and Latitude Financial and has worked with hundreds of young professionals to help them realise their potential.
Renata’s life passion is helping people be the best version of themselves. In 2019, Renata decided to dedicate herself to living this passion by starting Maxme.
Having two high school aged children at the time, Renata was acutely aware of the challenges facing young people in particular as they look towards entering the workforce. She knew by helping young people to develop their human skills she had the potential to make a real difference.
After working one-on-one with Maxme’s first clients and consulting to organisations, it didn’t take long for Renata to realise she wanted to reach even more people. She needed to package up her 30+ years of human skills wisdom into something that could be accessed anytime, anywhere.
The aim - democratise human skills development so it could be accessed by anyone who needed it, not just a privileged few in big corporates who had been hand-picked for the path to excellence.
And so, the Hodie app was born and the Maxme suite of products continues to grow to help all the humans to reach their potential and thrive.
At Maxme, we believe success isn’t just about IQ, it’s about unlocking what makes us truly human.
Through exceptional learning experiences, we equip young people with the critical human skills, advice and support needed to realise their career potential and thrive. Our pledge is to be a trusted partner on that journey.
Affordable human skills development for anyone, anywhere, at any time they want it.
Our Brand DNA (Pillars)
- HUMANISING for SUCCESS.
Success isn’t about IQ, it’s about unlocking what makes us truly human. That’s the reason we exist - to equip people with the critical human skills they need to realise their career potential and thrive.
- ENLIGHTENING through EXPERIENCE.
We’re obsessed with engagement. In fact, everything we do is about optimising the learning experience for our users. From gamified apps to immersive work-experience programs, captivating, effortless and, above all, enjoyable experiences are king.
- SPREADING THE LOVE AT SCALE.
Creative thinkers with exponential ideas, we’re committed to solving human skills challenges at scale. We love partnering with local mates to do great things, but know the power of spreading our magic across the world too. We think big from the outset, relentlessly innovate to accelerate, and deploy technologies today that will transcend tomorrow.
- HERE FOR ALL THE HUMANS.
Democratisation is in our DNA - we level the playing field, empowering all humans to upskill, wherever they’re at. Just as there’s no place for boys-club boardrooms and diversity-deficient workplaces, there’s no place for elitism in education. Providing affordable education to anyone, anywhere, at any time they want it? Now that’s a world we’re excited about.
- PROGRESSING with PURPOSE.
To achieve design that works, quality data, critical analysis, and informed decisions are key. Our learning never stops and curiosity never stagnates. Through rigorous reflection and a fierce addiction to excellence, we forge purposeful pathways for growth.
- COLLABORATING for BIGGER BENEFITS.
Helping humans become the best version of themselves is a serious perk of our work, but when it comes to ‘maximising’ en masse, we’re passionate about solving broader problems too. For educators, we empower fulfilled, prepared, resilient students. For business, our maxme grads expedite recruitment and hit the ground running sooner. For the economy? More effective businesses powered by more purposeful people. And for Government, less pressure on health and welfare.
