LEARNING THAT STICKS
Our clients value our unique approach for its very high learning memory. Simply said, learning from our programmes sticks.
We have all felt it – a moment where we were completely and totally engaged in something, where everything simply “clicked”. This extraordinary sensation is what every moment of our programmes is designed to inspire and which we achieve through our unique approach.
MAIN CORNERSTONES OF OUR APPROACH
“Tell me and I forget, teach me and I may remember, involve me and I learn.”
1. COLLABORATIVE IMMERSION
“Working with people so dedicated to their visions, I knew that I could not disappoint them and need to deliver my best.” -Julia W., DLH
What is the level of motivation and the true value of the experience, when a group analyzes and works to resolve artificial problems presented in a fictitious case study?
Our programmes challenge participants with hands-on business projects and collaborative workshops. We present participants with situations where their actions generate real-life outcomes that directly influence the organizations and individuals which they are working with. The aspect of tangible risks and rewards created by our live-project setting helps trigger active engagement, commitment and – most importantly – genuine learning amongst the participants.
The key to learning success lies in the fact that humans remember over 90 % of what they experience.

2. OUT-OF-CLASSROOM ENVIRONMENT
“Being in such different and challenging conditions 24/7 gave me a high dose of energy and passion during the entire programme, incomparable with ordinary trainings.” -Michael P., DSM
What drives and excites business professionals to develop and learn when they are sitting in a classroom or a corporate meeting room?
Our programmes disrupt the typical routine of classroom learning by placing participants in challenging foreign environments, pairing them with entrepreneurs, innovators and industry experts, and confronting them with exciting business projects that offer genuine risks and rewards.
This approach immerses participants completely in an unfamiliar environment and pushes them to develop the critical skills, know-how, and intellectual and emotional capabilities required to achieve success. Intensive engagement of all the senses plays a proven role in cultivating strong learning memory.
93% of executives interviewed claim that their success is directly attributable to pushing beyond their comfort zone.

3. FACILITATION BY COACHES
“The programme was very intensive, with thousands of experiences. I really appreciated the sessions with coaches, when I could sort out my thoughts and review the key take aways that I plan to implement in my daily job.” -Jana K., Accenture
In a given week, most of us encounter interesting information that we soon forget about because we didn’t have the opportunity to reflect on its value and potential impact on our work/life.
Our programmes are facilitated by certified coaches who help to translate participant experiences into impactful lessons that directly improve their working lives.
86% of companies report that coaching has a positive ROI for their business.
