They leverage our unique system of accelerated skill-development called Cycles to Mastery.

1. Digital Course

You first watch a collection of 5-7 minute digital courses to learn to get a grounding in the skill, its pedigree and how it’s best applied.

2. Lab

Taking the skill taught in the digital course, you then practice each skill with a simple assignment to demonstrate understanding.

Rounds of feedback ensure the learning targets are met.

3. Application

Next you applies a collection of skills to address a case-study challenge, requiring the synthesis of skills and their use.

Rounds of feedback ensure the learning targets are met.

4. Experience

Now the skills as a set are applied to a relevant challenge of your choosing.  This “real-world” application helps you connect the dots from theory, to practice and reality – creating new behaviors and outcomes.

Rounds of feedback ensure the learning targets are met.

5. Reflection

After having applied the skills and seen the results, you reflect on the effects and their new skill.  This self-reflection helps you galvanize the learning so it becomes a new way to think, versus an observation that doesn’t drive new action.
