Profile System, Myers-Briggs Type Indicator, Firo B, Leadership
Analysis, Listening Style Indicator, 360 assessments, Focus groups
and Personal Interviews, are some of the tools LTA uses to assist
in finding the right development approach and learning activities
for our clients.
Whenever appropriate, LTA incorporates customized Experience-based
learning activities as part of our delivery design. Experience-based
learning is rich in symbols, metaphors, feelings, and conveyance.
It encourages participants to see similarities between situations
that happen during a planned activity or coaching conversation,
and situations in other aspects of life and work. The participants
find themselves engulfed in the dynamics of the activity, both
emotionally and intellectually.
This is one of the most important and delicate part of the learning
process. The facilitator must be skillful… or the meaning
is lost and the participant feels like all s/he did was an exercise.
LTA facilitators debrief with the participants in a manner that
enables them to process their experiences in a clearer, more intense
manner than through the more traditional instructional strategies.
Asking questions, using metaphors and intense listening for deeper
meaning are basic skills mastered by LTA’s facilitators.
The more participants digest, synthesize, and assimilate what
is happening in the planned activity or coaching conversation,
the more learning and behavioral change is eminent.
