Applied Capabilities

Programs to build leadership capacities to support transformation

We believe that capabilities are developed when learning new skills and knowledge is applied in one’s context. Capability also includes the exercising of “leadership” in roles at all levels. Our approach surfaces and strengthens this “leadership” as particular capabilities are being built. We build capabilities using an experiential learning approach including training, on the job application, feedback and coaching. When development and application of learning occurs at multiple levels, it results in new organization capacities to enhance efficiencies and effectiveness.
