A new paradigm in training and development.

All our training and development programs are part of our integrated System of Transformation and benefit from the force multiplying effect.

Each program can be delivered stand-alone or as part of a larger, integrated leadership development or organization transformation strategy.
Either way, you realize immediate on-the-job results.
Here’s how:

Case application generates immediate benefits to the organization. ​

All our programs include significant case application, where participants apply their learning to their most pressing personal, leadership, organization or community challenges. This produces both learning and immediate application.

Experiential, adult learning delivers sustainable outcomes.

All our programs are based in experiential, adult learning theory, where participants practice what they learn so they embody and retain it long term. Their learning gets embodied and integrated, so they carry it into their lives and work. It becomes a part of them.

Stakeholders learn what is relevant and useful to them.

All our programs are stakeholder focused. The cases, examples, models and methods speak to the participants in their role, making learning relevant and meaningful. It enables them to solve their specific challenges and achieve the breakthroughs relevant to their work and life.
