About Us

Our mission:

We are committed to helping individuals, teams and organizations reach their full potential through the deliberate and transformative process of experiential learning.

Who we are

We are a global service organization of experiential learners and educators (facilitators, experts, standard setters, and coaches) who are committed to empowering others to apply Kolb Experiential Learning in all contexts.  We do this to develop citizens who are capable of managing the world’s most difficult dilemmas and innovating a sustainable future.

What we do

We promote Kolb Experiential Learning through education, professional development, consulting, training, coaching, assessments, research and a community of practice.

We provide a rigorous, proven process for lifelong learning while customizing our approach and delivery to our clients’ unique needs. It’s grounded in the work of David Kolb, who optimized a four-step experiential learning process incorporating nine learning styles. It follows the process that our brain uses to learn deliberately and thoroughly.

Our hub offers courses, workshops, certificate programs and other learning experiences (in person or online) that meet the needs of corporate groups and organizations, educators, teams and individuals. The Institute’s experienced team also offers coaching, open enrollment programs, and training customized to our clients’ needs.

We personalize our programs and customize our delivery to best suit you.
