Today the challenge for leaders is to solve harder and more complex problems in less time than ever before. How can you help leaders develop the skills they need to not only adapt to but excel in this complex and volatile environment?  Accelerated learning offers a means of developing essential leadership skills faster, cheaper, and even better. Based on what the latest brain research indicates about how humans learn naturally, Accelerated Learning integrates a positive learning environment, total learner involvement, collaboration, multiple learning styles, and relevant contexts to unlock the potential for optimal performance. In this session, you’ll learn about the Accelerated Learning Cycle and principles. Then you’ll apply these to address your own leadership development challenges.
