designing learning experiences
Learning at, from and through work
Whether it is designing workshops, work-based learning experiences or the Post Graduate Certificate, everything we do is focused on your business.
Skills and capabilities
Top business schools are now recognising the value of work-based learning.
In the approach that we take, you discover knowledge resources and theoretical insights, interpret them for your own work context, experiment with them through a practical project, and then reflect on the outcomes.
This develops the creative leadership, critical thinking and reflective practice skills that are so essential for 21st century business conditions.
Targeted and just-in-time
Both services are based around conversation, reflection, and just-in-time content. Knowledge is experimented with at the point where it is needed.
We have created cost effective learning options which will give you the opportunity to engage in the same type of learning that business schools provide - but we offer up-to-the-minute topics relevant to a fast changing world.
Our workshops and we-learn experiences are designed for new-style leaders who are looking to learn leadership skills that will equip them to act effectively in operating contexts where complexity, uncertainty and rapid change are now normal.
New-style leaders also want to know how to make the transition to new, smarter ways of working.
The we-learn experience is for people needing to do something challenging - doing something better, differently or for the first time:
Up until now it has typically been for senior executives like HR Directors, Marketing Directors, Finance Directors involved in mergers, responding to global competitive threats, launching new products, getting into new markets etc.
It has also been for people taking on additional responsibilities - senior nurses assuming managerial roles or doing things that junior doctors used to do.
Or it is specialists working in complex areas - Royal Airforce officers procuring new technology to retro-fit to existing planes.
It is now for any leader, wherever they are in the organisation, who wants to develop the thinking and leadership skills that will help them to to set performance conditions for new ways of working to emerge.
The thinking and leadership skills will also make them stand out from the crowd.
