Experiential Learning Model from Experience to Lead

Experiential Learning Model

We’ve derived our Experiential Learning Model from the educational theorist David A. Kolb.  His theory rests on two pillars: the learning cycle (left) and the learner’s style.  Different learning styles each thrive in different stages of the cycle, for this reason amongst others, it is important to complete the full cycle of learning to have the most impact.

To best serve you in our Leadership Experiences we begin with the top of the cycle: Experience.  During the program you’ll journey from Experience to Reflection & Discussion to Conceptualization numerous times.  Closing the program with a time of reflection, open dialogue and conceptualization, every participant has the opportunity, formally or informally, to commit to a task or change they are going to pursue.  The application of that commitment begins as you return to your work environment.

Contact us to discuss how we can actively support your work in applying what you’ve learned!

What Clients Say

“When we found out that there was flooding issues in Houston right before our program I immediately left a message for Amanda. I went out to run a few errands and by the time I was able to get back to my phone I had messages from all of you and the problem solved. You provided fantastic customer service! We pride ourselves on customer service and are so happy to be partnering with a like-minded group!”

Anita Keenan, Operations Leader, McBride & Lucius

“I gained valuable insights into how to deal more effectively with subordinate managers; specifically, the importance of adapting my own communication style, depending upon the needs of each of my managers. I learned that a transformational leader will understand the specific needs of key subordinates. Some will perform better only when provided with detailed direction, others want and need much more general direction and will perform better by applying personal judgment and initiative.”
