ASPIRE: Custom Experiences

For six decades, we have partnered with organizations to grow their executive talent. We make learning transformational by supporting new ideas and skills with a referential framework of real-life experiences. The ASPIRE© model of learning emerged from this teaching and learning philosophy.

Our ASPIRE model combines the basic dimensions of adult learning.

  • Aesthetic
  • Social
  • Physical
  • Inspirational
  • Rational
  • Emotional

By using the ASPIRE model, we combine many, if not all, of these concepts to provide your organization with a unique learning experience. For more information about each dimension of ASPIRE, roll your mouse over each dimension in the graphic below.
