We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again. Every team is different. When we design a learning experience for your team, we do it collaborativelyーwith you and for you.
This is what makes our learning experiences awesome and effective. We make a point to keep up-to-date on the latest research. And as educators, we’ve seen the research backed up in practice. Here are three learning theories that ground all our work:
Trust learners to take the lead
Learning is most effective when teams bring their own knowledge, experiences, and ideas to the table. We are never the sage on the stage but the guide on the side.
Pose questions, not answers
Working through questions, problems, and scenarios is critical to building the kind of self-reflection, trust, and curiosity that makes teams bigger and bolder in their thinking. Our facilitation style is all about asking questions, whether in large groups or in one-on-one coaching.
Design unforgettable experiences
Passive learning doesn’t work in classrooms, and it doesn’t work in the office. People learn best by doing and reflecting. We take you out into the world to have immersive experiences, meet inspiring leaders, and try out new perspectives and ways of being.
We believe in research and theory. But we also believe in learning on the ground. We work all over the mapーglobally, and across sectors and industriesーand we’ve learned a lot from our clients. We love when we can apply what we’ve learned to future designs.
We know that reimagining isn’t always comfortable. Learning doesn’t come without some un-learning. Teams don’t exist without important differences. We don’t pretend that they do. We are ready to work with you and your team to design learning experiences that are the right mix of challenge and comfort.
We believe that race, identity, and power dynamics influence everything, including team culture. We strive to disrupt inequity both internally as a team, and in our work with clients and partners.
