Program Curriculum
Post-Modern Emergent Learning Methodologies

The Landers Consulting Group has been leading change and facilitating experiential learning for decades. We’ve used our experience and expertise to create real-world case studies, simulations that require our participants to discover what works and what doesn’t for themselves.

Our emergent learning process involves a series of intentional, iterative experiences produce new and insightful learning. We then, help learners extract those insights and help them uncover ways to apply them to their real world situations.

Research has shown that this kind of learning is “sticky” and retained. And since it is original, the new knowledge is adaptable to other, at home situations. Our participants become “change leaders” able to apply these insights to help their companies and clients successfully implement change.
