The TLA follows the principles of the Kolb Model, to create an experiential learning experience. Our trainings follow a cycle of four stages: of (1) having a concrete experience followed by (2) observation of and reflection on that experience which leads to (3) the formation of abstract concepts (analysis) and generalizations (conclusions) which are then (4) used to test a hypothesis in future situations, resulting in new experiences.
Yes. We offer individuals and organizations leadership programs to unlock their potential, achieve true agility, increased efficiency, and positive team culture. If you are a large group of participants or have special requests, you might benefit from a course designed specifically for your company. We recommend learning in teams of 4 to 20 individuals.

We get that a lot of businesses today offer perks like foosball, kombucha kegs, and hipster gym memberships. Nothing wrong with that.

So we offer competitive salaries and a portfolio of benefits options so you can do you. At work and outside of work.
