Reorient and Rewire
Filling knowledge gaps is essential, but getting leaders ready to succeed in the fast paced, unpredictable business environment requires a more fundamental rewiring and reorientation.
We intuitively know leaders learn and change most effectively through experience. Neuroscience has recently provided evidence showing that deeper learning and real change occur when people are actively engaged, emotionally hooked, and have opportunities to practice and learn from their errors. This level of engagement and cognition does more than add knowledge, it has the power to shift patterns of thinking and change behavior.
Taken together, these things call for a shift in our education and development models and a rebalancing of the core design elements—content, context and experience.
Our design methodology incorporates the right balance of content, context, and experiences for any solution, whether it’s a program on managerial fundamentals or an in-market immersion for senior executives. The experiences vary widely in format, from metaphoric to hyper-realistic—always geared towards specific learning outcomes.
This approach enables leaders not only to learn, but also to change and adapt to new challenges.
