Transformative Learning Center- T.L.C.
Grow. Learn. Be.
Transformative learning places an importance on a holistic approach in which the “whole person” engages in the learning process integrating knowledge, experience emotions, values, intuition, and strengths through critical reflection and hands-on practice. The emphasis is on the development and application of new and re-formed insights that lead to shifts in mindset, behaviors, habits and patterns.
We provide a wide array of transformative learning options that range from short workshops and group coaching to an in-depth professional certificate program.
All learning options are interactive, context-rich and grounded in current adult learning theories with an emphasis on relational learning.
Our approach is founded on our belief that adult learning is optimized when:
- Linked to self-identified learning goals;
- Opportunities for experiential learning are integrated with current theory and practical models;
- Self-reflection and peer learning are woven together;
- Faculty serve as both coaches and exemplars; and
- Ongoing practice and support are incorporated into an overall learning plan.
We integrate a variety of social learning methods including applied improvisation, coaching, and dialogue.
The shortest distance between two people, is a laugh." Victor Borge
Learning in relationship is a key component for developing the capacity to engage effectively and authentically. This is the foundation for inspired leadership, conflict engagement, and interprofessional team membership. We incorporate theories and practices from the world of improvisation to build skills, shift mindsets, and stretch comfort zones- all with the goal of creating connection and developing insights that can be applied to real-world interactions.
Using nearly 20 years of improv experience, we carefully select interactive exercises that reinforce the ability to be present, listen, recognize offers, engage resistance, heighten ideas, and neutralize that internal voice that derails authentic engagement. Translation: We make learning fun!
