Our Program

What we believe about learning & deep change

Leaders learn most powerfully through reflection on experience. Reflection in LCCP is done both as an individual and with the learning community. A range of methodologies combine for a life-changing process: presentation of concise theory, skills demonstration, relevant reading, shared narratives and co-created class experiences as well as on-going and mutual feedback from faculty, mentor coaches and peers. Our multi-dimensional learning methodology ensures deep change, where theory becomes practice and learners become skilled leader-coaches.
