A measurable advantage of Journey Learning programs is the ability to customize the content to your organization's unique environment. Journey Learning can incorporate specific language, best practices, and company philosophies into the learning experience to achieve greater synergy with your existing corporate culture.


Journey Learning utilizes an experiential learning method that is highly engaging and very impactful. Discussion sessions, audio and video presentations, application exercises, and reference readings provide a variety of delivery media to meet the varied learning styles of participants. Simulated real-world experiences are a key component so participants can practice new skills and transfer learnings back to their business worlds. Team competitions and energizers help to maintain a fun environment throughout. A typical engagement is a traditional workshop experience lasting between one and two days. Options exist for Journey Learning to facilitate the programs or for clients to achieve certification for in-house delivery.


For maximum impact and return on your investment, Journey Learning provides a variety of reinforcement resources to assure the program concepts and techniques are foremost in your people's minds so as to positively impact behaviors. Individual and group resources include: support literature, audio and video review files, scripted review exercises, performance feedback tools, web-based assessment and application activities, and on-the-job "memory joggers".

“I love helping people get better at what they do.  I find that people who are fortunate enough to be doing what they love, love to find ways to be better at it.  It’s a huge ‘kick’ to be able to improve someone’s competence in a discipline, while at the same time, making the experience fun.”
