Welcome to Learning, Activated

Learning and development programs are so important for employees – but what’s the value in teaching great content if it’s quickly forgotten? Directors of the Extraordinary activate the learning process to bring content to life, for knowledge retention that transforms into action.

Activating the learning process

Many learning and development programs focus on top-notch content but few consider how to ensure that fresh knowledge is retained. By matching leadership, learning and laughter to activate the learning process, Directors of the Extraordinary programs engage your people with unique development experiences to embed knowledge, delivering more value for your leadership investment.

Through a proven, evidence-based approach, our programs transform layers of important information into knowledge that sticks.

Building the foundations of organisational performance

Organisations thrive when culture, team and individual leadership foundations are strong and activated.

Organisations are built on people. But great people don’t automatically make great organisations. The foundations of culture, teamwork and individual leadership are core to achieving results. Our learning and development offerings are focused on these foundations and delivering results that can be seen at all levels of your organisation.

World class theory, boredom light

With waning attention spans and sceptical audiences, our learning and development offerings draw on world class theory and use our secret sauce to bring it alive. We specialise in combining theory and excellence in facilitation for truly unique ways of putting participants in the centre of the story to connect your people with learning outcomes that matter to you.

Creating moments of discovery

When professional development really works, participants leave with a ‘work-altering-realisation’. These ah-ha moments of discovery drive the distinctive way we deliver training – it’s both an art and a science. A unique combination of interactive stimulus, theory and reflection are the science that underpins Directors of the Extraordinary programs; while expert facilitation is the art of drawing out the moment of discovery that changes everything.
