Accelerator Expedition is the leadership immersion experience that transforms high potential leaders into confident, globally savvy innovators. In this program, action learning goes beyond the classroom to immerse gifted leaders in challenges at the leading edge of change - with social innovators who are creating powerful and sustainable solutions.
We commonly meet with executives who want a learning and performance improvement consultancy to help them improve business practices, enhance their leadership bench, or help their workforce adapt to, accept, and adopt change.
The question for these clients is, “How do I select the right firm?” Important considerations include the right values fit, strong credentials, results in the field, practicality, business savvy, a fair price, and a solid track record. I’d like to offer another, less obvious criterion for consideration: Is your consultant providing a “twofer?”
Are you challenged by having to balance learning and getting work done? Consultants have begun to address that challenge by practicing "action learning", "applied learning", and "after-action review" — all ways of "learning by doing". Learning by doing provides a number of benefits, including decreased classroom learning time, focused transfer of learning to current business issues, and a way to evaluate the impact of new knowledge and skills on work as it occurs.
