      Action Learning -- Why we use a “Capability Building”  Approach

    The greatest myth in training programs is the false belief that knowledge brings results.
    Studies show that simply attaining knowledge does not improve performance.
    Adults learn differently than youth -- adults value learning when it can be applied to
    an immediate problem, opportunity, or objective, which gives it utility and impact.

  • When adults immediately APPLY what they learn,
    they retain 80% three weeks later
    .Capability Building Methodology
  • When they DON’T APPLY,
    they’ve  forgotten 80% three weeks later.

That’s why every learning module in our programs follows this
Four Stage Capability Building sequence:

Our programs seamlessly flow these steps so that people learn & apply in one continuous motion – making our capability programs highly successful.



We have a full array of workshops for your organization, alliance, value chain, conference, or association.


Learning that Builds Capability

Workshops Currently Available

Collaborative Shift - OnBoard1

Note: Sometimes there is confusion about the difference between a “workshop,” a “seminar,“ and a “program.”  Here’s our perspective:

  • Workshop:  a “workshop” connects strategies and practices directly to tools and applications aimed at producing real results quickly.
  • Seminara “seminar”  is quite different; it is a discussion of  ideas, concepts, or options,  but does not necessarily aim at implementation
  • Program: a “program” integrates strategy and implementation; it consists of multiple elements, including briefings, planning, diagnostics,
                           leadership & resource commitments,  engagement, implement roll-out, metrics, action workshops, feedback and learning.

The BEST Results are
 attained when TEAMS
 apply what they learn
 immediately upon
 gaining their
new insight

We recognize that much of leadership training cannot be done solely as an academic exercise; it can only be exercised in the heat of a real challenge – in the crucible of action and the tension of emotions. Our programs focus on integrating frameworks & architectures with success factors, tools, coupled with a heavy dose of application.  For this reason, we do not rely heavily on case studies, but instead use the pressure cooker of real life situations, simulations, and interactive co-creation.
