Imagine Learning Differently

L2LSquappleReflectionimagine learning differently

Learn to Lead is a small, innovative training company that designs and delivers 3D full-sensory, interactive learning experiences. These experiences create the perfect context for extraordinary ‘a-ha moments’ that initially change mindsets but ultimately change behaviour. For over 10 years, we have combined logic and magic to delight and engage our learners in their professional development.

If it involves inspiring great attitudes, building functional knowledge or improving productive behaviours, we can help you IMAGINE LEARNING DIFFERENTLY.

What We Do

Learn to Lead offers a wide range of corporate learning solutions via our three operating arms, namely Training Room, Design Studio and Assessment Centre.

Our Methodology

So what makes our training different? Simply put, it is the way we see things. We have adopted two unusual perspectives to training that set us apart from our competition.

The first is our unwavering commitment to learning as a process rather than an event, which is the exact reason we created LearnPOD and our 3D Process Model.

The second is our passion for making the training room a place that people want to be with our considerable collection of engagement strategies, frame-games, interactive processes, RealPLAY’s, flipped classrooms, lecturettes and ever popular brain-flexing jolts.

Learn Pod

Our LearnPOD delivers a 3D Learning Solution which is targeted, experiential and ongoing. It origins are based on research done in 1992 by Broad and Newstrom revealing the key-relationships at the different stages of any intervention. We also borrow from the learnings of Ebbinghaus’s Curve of Forgetting which has been universally shown to increase the success (and return on investment) of any intervention if 3 critical relationships are cultivated.

3D Learning

The 3D in our methodology is a unique L2L model based on the findings of some of education’s greatest minds.

Training Room

The Training Room is where you will find our wide range of customizable programmes that can be rapidly deployed into your business for large-scale projects, or for short, sharp interventions. Our facilitators are professional, experienced and able to tailor a session to the specific needs of your company or industry.

  • Recruitment Writing Skills
    A job advertisement is often the first and only chance a company gets to ensure that the best talent in the business is inspired to apply for a particular job.  If your job advertisement doesn’t grab and hold your perfect candidate’s attention, you may lose that candidate to another company – perhaps even your competitor.

The Design Studio is where we flex our creative, experiential muscles by understanding your learning objectives and branding needs, and then creating a unique change solution from the ground up. In this studio, all things are possible…Let us create something unique for you!

  • Bite-Sized Instructional Design
    Millennial learners (and most others) want their learning to be delivered in bite-size chunks otherwise known as microlearning. In fact, in a recent survey it was found that 94% of the learners preferred and got more value from the bite-size learning than any other length of learning.

  Assessment Centre

“What gets measured, gets done!” At Learn to Lead we believe that the workshop is just one element of the real behavior change, which means what happens after is really the most important part. Assessment Centre will provide you with assessments, both technological (e.g. MPower, Clarity4D) and practical (e.g. Entegr8, Leaders in Action)), to ensure maximum retention, understanding and application of content.

  • Clarity 4D
    They say EQ is a more important quality for success than IQ. This global partner of ours uses the latest in colour-based personality profiling to help build EQ awareness and competence on both a personal and team level.
    Clarity 4D
