A new era. A new way to learn.

The New Era

We’re over a decade deep in the digital era.

Industrial-era companies who still cling to old-economy business models and command-and-control organizational structures are being disrupted by digital-native startups that have the agility, speed, and curiosity to reinvent the way works get done. The only true competitive advantage in this new era is an empowered, adaptable, self-driving culture.

Most companies are still saddled with learning programs and strategies designed for a bygone era. They may realize what’s at stake, but they don’t know how to break free of the rigid, one-size-fits all learning programs built to produce a uniform workforce full of interchangeable workers.

This new era of constant change demands just the opposite. No matter what industry you’re in, to succeed, you need engaged, creative employees in every department, in every role. Fast, adaptable, self-driven companies need new learning programs and strategies built in their image: Experience-based, open-path, and purpose-driven.

  • We encourage learning by doing.
  • We don't dictate. We shape.
  • We focus on solutions on the ground.
  • We have as many questions as answers.
  • We're in it for the long haul.

"If you're in the training biz, you know that engagement is key to getting your audience to retain what you're sharing. After reading Let Them Choose and hearing Jillian Douglas speak at ATD 2017, I was inspired to see if we could implement cafeteria learning at our company. It's a common sense approach to engaging learners, and giving them the ability to choose how they are going to learn something makes them the boss, when perhaps they fully anticipated sitting back and being lectured to. I'd always loved learning about constructivism in my learning-nerd education days (honestly, still in those days), and this harkened back to that sense of building and creating knowledge through experience." #CafeteriaLearning #LetThemChoose #ATD “The time is always right to do what is right.” -Martin Luther King Jr. Happy #blackhistorymonth  Jillian at #TheKingCenter during her time in #Atlanta.
