Greenleaf has been developing, delivering, and managing tailored, scalable professional development training solutions since our founding over a decade ago. And, for many of our experts, much longer than that!
We’re delighted to help our government and commercial clients meet their specific team performance and professional growth needs. Some organizations require ongoing, comprehensive, enterprise-wide programs, while others just need a few stand-alone training workshops. In any case, we use proven experiential learning models and processes to meet their objectives.
Our adult learning experts understand what it takes for your team members to truly adopt new skills and behaviors. That’s why we engage them with highly interactive learning experiences and help them apply critical thinking and self-reflection. And, with our deep bench of experts across many organizational subject matters, we deliver highly relevant, action-oriented training content.
Maximize learning effectiveness and cost-efficiencies with our flexible methodology:
- Discovery: Greenleaf gets to the heart of your organization’s knowledge and performance gaps with expert assessments and data analysis. Our research capabilities include quantitative surveys as well as qualitative methods such as focus groups and in-depth interviews.
- Design & Development: Using evidence from the discovery data, Greenleaf creates instructionally sound, professional development, student-centered training courses to meet clients’ specific learning and performance objectives. Some clients require new curriculum and coursework, while in other cases we can re-design and update existing coursework.
- Implementation: Greenleaf can integrate your training program with the organization’s business areas and workflow. We’re adept at delivering training content across all platforms, including in-person and web-based instructor-led training, hybrid learning, and online asynchronous instruction.
- Performance Measurements: Greenleaf works with clients upfront to link learning to performance. When students can learn it, they can perform it on their jobs. Setting performance measurement methods upfront enables us to assess program effectiveness and refine if and where necessary. Our evaluation tools ensure learners progress from “actual” to “desired” performance.
We design training programs that engage adult learners
Greenleaf incorporates the adult learning principles developed by Dr. Malcolm Knowles. He is credited with the dramatic shift from “teaching-oriented” adult education, featuring an active presenter and passive learners, to “engagement-oriented” adult education, featuring an active facilitator and engaged learners.
In our courses, we apply five core engagement principles to deepen learning and adoption:
