Experiential Learning Styles
increase your capacity for learning
Used by millions across the globe, the Kolb Learning Styles Inventory (LSI) is a tool that helps individuals understand their unique approach to learning, leading and living.
Experiential Learning is a process of assimilating experience into concepts and accommodating concepts into experience. There is tension created between these two processes, and so by its very nature, learning is a tension and conflict filled process.
While we learn all the time, we do not learn in the same way. As a result of our unique set of experiences, we develop a preferred style of learning, the way in which we absorb, adopt and act on new information.
The Kolb Learning Styles Inventory (LSI) is a tool developed by David A. Kolb Ph.D. which describes 4 distinct learning style preferences that individuals have, based on their experiences, which influences their choices made in life and work. After participating in our Experiential Learning Styles program, participants will not only discover their own learning style, they will learn how to develop themselves in all four styles and how to better collaborate in groups with diverse styles.

Experience the source of learning and development
People spend their entire lives learning, but few understand how their choices, decisions and performance are influenced by the way in which they learn. When you consider that learning is the major process by which one navigates life, learning how to do this well becomes an essential condition to reaching one’s full potential.
The Experiential Learning Styles program, using the insights and research from the Kolb Learning Styles Inventory (LSI), will help participants understand the cycle of learning. They will also build awareness of their unique way of learning, based on four distinct styles: Diverging, Assimilating, Converging, Accommodating and to use these insights to improve their capacity for learning.
The program describes the strengths in each learning style and how they influence learning in everyday life. Participants will be able to apply the information and insights to not only increase their learning capacity, but to become more effective in decision-making, working as a team, resolving conflict and communicating with others.
