What’s an Experiential Workshop?

Experiential learning is based on the Adult Learning Theory—that adults learn best by doing—and each of these programs uniquely connects your essential workplace skills with your leadership acumen through a variety of dynamic challenges (walking the Gettysburg battlefield, skeet shooting, running a simulated brokerage in a virtual marketplace). Once you uncover your leadership style and understand how you operate, you’ll gain greater understanding and appreciation of how to best foster your team’s professional growth.

How Is It Different?

It’s different because it’s active. Each program begins with an assessment to assist participants in getting maximum benefit from the experience. Our experiential workshops encourage participants to immerse themselves in hands-on activities and live discussions. Active learning is the best form of learning. It’s stimulating, it’s unique and it results in a higher retention rate and a more successful experience. Here’s to leaving long lectures and boring demos by the wayside.
